The North American NBA (National Basketball Association) League is widely considered as the most prominent professional basketball league in the world. Since its foundation 73 years ago, the popularity of basketball games among teenagers and adults made the NBA league one of the most popular sports events in the US and Canada.
The current NBA season is going to end on 15th April this year, with the finals scheduled for June. It has been a hectic season, and we have seen players breaking records. LeBron James surpassed 33,000 career points and became the fourth player for reaching such a milestone in NBA history. He also conquered the third place on the NBA all-time scoring list, moving past the NBA legend Kobe Bryant.
16th February is marked for the 2020 NBA All-Star exhibition game, where we will get to see Team LeBron facing against Team Giannis. It is taking place at the United Center in Chicago.
This year’s NBA coverage is shared with several networks, including ABC/ESPN, TNT, and NBA TV. This is the fourth year of the ongoing nine-year contract with the NBA. As expected, cord-cutters do have multiple options for streaming NBA games.
