As I began to review the best shooters in the NBA, I learned so much more.
The National Basketball Association (NBA) has 30 teams (29 in the United States and 1 in Canada), and is an active member of (USAB), which is part of the International Basketball Federation. The league was founded in 1946 in New York. The commissioner of the league is Adam Silver. The television partners are ABC, ESPN, NBA TV and TNT. The Canadian television partners are Sportsnet, TSN and TSN2.
The NBA has became very popular in 1979, when rookies like Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, Michael Jordan, Isaiah Thomas, and many more lead to many championship games. In 1984, more players became popular like- Scottie Pippin, Hakeem Olajuwon and many more. In the 1990’s new stars started to rise like, Charles Barkley, Patrick Ewing, Karl Malone, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and many others who were inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame.
The NBA begin their training, after a summer break. The training camps allows the coaching staff to evaluate players, and scout the team’s strengths and weaknesses. This is how they observe and determine who the best shooter’s will be, and which players’ will be fantastic for the team wins. After training camp, a series of preseason games are held in NBA cities and some overseas, the games begins the last week in October.
