Tiger Fight, October 24, according to Associated Press reporter Tim Reynolds, according to sources, the NBA board’s goal is to start next season’s 70-72 regular season on December 22, and the NBA Finals will be like this again. For many years, it ended in June.
据美联社记者蒂姆·雷诺兹（Tim Reynolds）称，Tiger Fight是10月24日，据消息人士称，NBA董事会的目标是在12月22日开始下个赛季的常规赛70-72，而NBA总决赛将再次如此。多年来，它在六月结束。
The source, who asked not to be named, said on Friday local time that the possibility of fans going to the scene to watch the game will depend on how well a particular market performed against the new crown virus at that time.
There are other options, such as waiting until the end of the season to start the game, hoping that more stadiums can have fans to watch the game. But the person familiar with the matter said that starting the game in December, rather than starting in mid-January or later, could generate a revenue difference of about $500 million. According to the person familiar with the matter, the league’s expected revenue loss this season is about $1.5 billion.
The decision for next season has not yet been finalized. Negotiations between the NBA and the players' union are continuing, including consideration of financial parameters for the next few years. These negotiations, especially on funding issues, must be concluded before any real decisions are made for next season. Generally speaking, after the finals in mid-June, there will be about three and a half months of rest, and then the next training camp. But if the next season ends in June, the players can still participate in the Tokyo Olympics to be re-hosted next summer. The Tokyo Olympics are scheduled to start in July.
According to ESPN reports, sources revealed that the NBA has proposed a schedule of 72 regular season and playoff qualifying tournaments for the next season. On Friday afternoon local time, the NBA shared these plans on a conference call with the league's board of directors. According to sources, the league plans to quickly complete negotiations with the players union to implement the plan.
