piumini moncler “My personal view is that we’re ready to make that change,” NBA Commissioner Adam Silver said Tuesday at the end of his news conference following the league’s board of governors meetings this week, outlet moncler adding that the change won’t be immediate. piumini moncler

moncler uomo Discussions have been ongoing between the league and the Players Association for months about changing the age limit from where it currently stands 19 years old and a year removed from high school for moncler bambino saldi domestic players; 19 years old for international players to 18 years old, which would return the league to the days of players jumping straight from high school to the NBA. moncler uomo

moncler outlet serravalle According to Michele Roberts, therecently moncler saldi outlet reelected executive director of the players’ union, the decision to change the age limit and when it will be implemented could come in the next few months. moncler outlet serravalle

moncler outlet online uomo “I’m not moncler outlet serravalle going to tell you what we talk about,” Roberts said. “But I will say, and I know you know, it’s been something that has been top of mind for him, for the teams, and for us. moncler outlet online uomo

moncler saldi uomo “It was, of course, a topic of discussion among the players. Eastern time, the current moncler outlet trebaseleghe start time of free agency. moncler saldi uomo

piumini moncler outlet That will allow the NBA to turn the free agent feeding frenzy that takes place each summer into a televised spectacle in a way that, even with ESPN broadcasting wall to wall coverage this year, can’t take place currently with the late night start time. piumini moncler outlet

moncler bambino saldi “I not only heard moncler uomo from my friends moncler outlet online shop in the media, but as I get older, I think we are all tired of all nighters,” Silver said with a smile. “I also heard from several teams, ‘Does this really have to be at midnight?’ I think that’s something we need to find agreement on with the Players Association, but I think we can change it for next year.” moncler bambino saldi

piumini moncler uomo The other main subject of discussion Tuesday at both news conferences was the state of competitive balance in the NBA.

For his part, Silver said that while he moncler saldi uomo understands there are always going to be limitations on what can be done as far as competitive balance in a league in piumini moncler outlet which one star player can have an outsize impact, he said there still is more work that can be done.

moncler bambino outlet “I don’t think it’s necessarily, per se, bad that the Warriors are so dominant,” Silver said. “Like I’ve said before, we’re not trying to create some forced parity. moncler outlet online uomo What we are really focused on is parity of opportunity. There are unique issues, and even as I said during the NBA Finals, LeBron [James] had 59 teammates over the past eight years. moncler bambino outlet

moncler outlet online shop “So we recognize great players, superstar players, are going to have a unique abilities to impact games. But, having said that, there are changes we can make to the system that I think will create more competitive balance and more equality of opportunity, and those are things we look at.” moncler outlet online shop

moncler donna Roberts,who enters her second four year term as executive director after the union announced her reelection Tuesday, and Silver both deserve credit for creating a harmonious working relationship between the league and its players.

piumini moncler scontatissimi With Roberts in her post until 2022, and Silver in his until 2024 after his own contract extension was announced last month, both will now be able to try to replicate the process for the next CBA, which both the players and the league have the ability to opt out of after the 2022 23 season. piumini moncler scontatissimi
