Although total viewership for the NBA is down in comparison to the 2014-2015 season, sports fans, officials, and players alike remain optimistic about the future of their sport. In the face of a declining audience, however, some team owners and league executives might have to tap into their creative sides to increase interest. Utilizing Technology […]

League-Wide Advertising and the D-League The NBA D-League’s partnership with Gatorade is unprecedented for sports in the United States. No other minor league, let alone any sports league in the US features a league wide sponsorship. With this move, the NBA will also receive “performance and recovery analysis” from Gatorade.

However, his Cleveland Cavaliers have taken a back seat to the dominant, record-setting ways of the Golden State Warriors and San Antonio Spurs. The Detroit Pistons saw an uptick in their offense after the All-Star Break […]

Despite this being a false reputation, the Atlanta Hawks vs. Boston Celtics is viewed as a series of two similar teams. Two units that are better than the sum of their parts and that don’t feature any stars but play great team basketball. That sells the Hawks quite a bit short, even if it is […]
