 The NBA intends to reduce next seasons regular season to 72 games, which starts on December 22


In addition, the NBA has proposed that there will be other changes next season, such as adding extra games, canceling the all star weekend in Indianapolis, etc. The league is also considering a two-week break in the middle of the season. Among them, the reduction of regular matches is mainly for the early end of the season, striving to finish in June next year, and then let the U.S. mens basketball team normally participate in the Tokyo Olympic Games in July. At the same time, the opening of next season before Christmas will meet the broadcasting rights of ESPN and Turner to the greatest extent. In the current discussion, NBA is strongly inclined not to play this seasons isolated bubble system, but to continue the original home away mode. However, it will learn from the MLB model to play multiple games with a team in a certain city instead of the original one.
