NBA Fans React To In-Season Tournament Becoming A Reality

After years of talk, the NBA is adding an in-season tournament to their agenda.

On Friday night, the league struck a new deal with the NBA players association.

Among the agreements in the new deal, the NBA will get an in-season tournament that commissioner Adam Silver has been pushing for years.


The in-season tournament could arrive as soon as the 2023-24 season. The event will include pool-play games baked into the regular-season schedule starting in November — with eight teams advancing to a single-elimination tournament in December. The Final Four will be held at a neutral site, with Las Vegas prominent in the discussion, sources said.

According to Shams Charania of The Athletic, the winning team in the tournament will get $500,000 per player.

Fans did not smee thrilled over the in-season tournament becoming a reality.

“G-League Invitation In-Season Tournament because you are crazy as hell if you think this is for the guys who are about to make a league minimum of 20 million very soon.” said one fan.

“In-Season Tournament gotta be the dumbest thing i’ve ever heard of” said another fan on Twitter.

The first in-season tournament could come by next season and it’ll be interesting to see how it plays out.
