Report: 2020-21 NBA season starting on Christmas Day is still a possibility

Adam Silver NBA

The start date of the 2020-21 NBA season has been a hot topic of discussion as of late, with no telling when the league will get back to work.

Over the last few months, it has all been speculation concerning when next season will begin, with Christmas Day being rumored to be a potential possibility. Even though it seemed to get ruled out by NBA commissioner Adam Silver, it remains a possibility.

“There has been some discussion among owners about starting as soon as Christmas Day to take advantage of that historically prime NBA showcase, sources said,” wrote Brian Windhorst and Zach Lowe of ESPN. “Though numerous teams contacted by ESPN over the last several days weren’t sure such a timeline was feasible. Others have been pushing for a start around Martin Luther King Day weekend in mid-January, sources said.”

Obviously, anything can change from now until a set start date for the NBA’s 2020-21 campaign. That has become abundantly clear with the COVID-19 pandemic changing plans for virtually every event in 2020.

Only time will tell whether Christmas Day is a realistic start date or if the league has to continue to evaluate the situation moving forward.
