We’re going back to normal.
After two years of being enclosed due to the coronavirus pandemic, the NBA is finally
going outside of US to play some preseason basketball.
The Association has already made an agreement to do two preseason games in Abu
Dhabi next season. This is the first time to see the NBA in the UAE.
This is a very bold move of the league who’s celebrating its 75 anniversary season right
now.
Again, of course this is a global issue, COVID, and so it’s not just conditions here in the
United States but the places at least where we have traditionally played and in Europe
and Asia and in Latin America, we would need COVID rates to come way down there as
well,” NBA Commissioner Adam Silver said.
The global games have been the habit of the league every preseason wherein at one
time they played in the Philippines.
