The NBA 2021 season is scheduled to start on December 22, 2020. However, this date is subject to change due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The 2021 NBA season is the 75th season of the National Basketball Association (NBA). The regular season began on December 22, 2020, and will end on May 16, 2021. The playoffs will begin on May 22, 2021, and will end with the NBA Finals in July.
The 2020–21 NBA season is scheduled to be the first in which all 30 teams will play an 82-game regular season. This was originally supposed to happen in the 2020–21 season but was pushed back one year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
In February 2021, it was announced that the All-Star Game would return on March 7, 2022. The game was originally supposed to be held in Indianapolis but was postponed due to the pandemic.
This will also be the first season since the 2019–20 season that there will not be an in-season tournament.
When does the NBA 2021 Season Start?
The 2021 NBA season is tentatively scheduled to begin on Tuesday, December 1, 2020, and end on Wednesday, April 7, 2021. The season was originally supposed to start on October 16, 2020, but it was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
What Happened in the 2020 NBA Season?
The 2020 NBA season was supposed to start on October 22, 2020. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the season was postponed to December 22, 2020.
The 2020 NBA season was unlike any other. Because of the pandemic, there were many changes that had to be made in order for the season to even happen. Some of these changes included:
– Playing all games in Orlando, Florida at the Walt Disney World Resort
– Strict health and safety protocols put in place in order to protect the players and staff
– Only allowing a limited number of people inside the arena
Despite all of the changes and challenges, the 2020 NBA season was a success. The Los Angeles Lakers were crowned champions after defeating the Miami Heat in six games.
What to Expect in the 2021 NBA Season
This will be the first NBA season in a long time that feels “normal.”
The 2021 NBA season is set to tip off on December 22, 2020, which will also mark the return of fans to NBA arenas. After a year of playing in front of empty seats, the league is allowing a limited number of fans back into arenas starting with this upcoming season.
While the league has not released the schedule for the 2021 season yet, we do know that each team will play 72 games instead of the traditional 82. The schedule is expected to be released sometime in mid-November.
Now that we know when the season is starting, let’s take a look at what to expect in the 2021 NBA season.
