October 18, 2021

The NBA is more than a game, it has evolved into something bigger than basketball.
Where entertainment, sport, pop culture and philanthropy have combined to create a global platform for youth & families to build a community, for future generations across the world.

NBA will tip off its season on the 19th of October 2021 with the reigning world champions, Milwaukee Bucks, hosting the Brooklyn Nets in a rematch of the Eastern Conference semi-finals. While the new and highly anticipated LA Lakers team of LeBron James, Anthony Davis, Russell Westbrook, and Carmel Anthony face Steph Curry, Draymond Green and the return of Klay Thompson’s Golden State Warriors.

History will be made, records will be broken, and new legends will be born.

NBA 75

As part of the NBA 75 campaign, NBA will publish list of the 75 greatest players in history, which will be announced later in the season, but we hazard a guess it will include some big names like; Kobe Bryant, Michael Jordan, LeBron James, Phil Jackson and Steph Curry.

It may also include some iconic moments like;
