Not that the NBA preseason is anything to get excited about, but your first look at your favorite team will be coming soon.

According to NBA.com, each team will play two preseason games, presumably a home and away one. Typically, teams play 7-8 exhibition games which include games in other cities and often sometimes against international squads. Originally, the NBA had 202 preseason games scheduled. Now that number will be 60. Most estimates had the NBA losing in the neighborhood of $200 to $300 million for missing the preseason. Some of those losses will be recouped, but not near as much.

Important note: According to the report, the preseason games will likely be played against regional teams so as to minimize travel.

Right now, training camps are set to start Dec. 9 along with free agency, so two preseason games will be fit into a two-week window before Dec. 25. Not impossible, but it will definitely be a mad dash leading up to the season.

Better than not though, for sure.

you say you can't comprehend something and then call me an idiot...

Who said anyting about any other sport, or about donating anything... The point of the post was that NBA players and owners dont care about winning or losing only getting paid. You obviously can't read either, but sure...I'm the idiot...

is that the best you have? you come at me with my reputation score, why don't you go and get a job so I can stop supporting your everyday life with my hard earned tax dollars, how does that sound?
LOL LOL... owned. 

Reputation on here don't mean a damn thing. I was what I am now rated "superstar" for a very long time. Then I was talking smack during a few baseball game center's and got tattled on and knocked down to rookie for like 3 months. It actually just changed today. Basically just means some people comment on things more than other people. Some of these idiots use it as justification to others that they are smarter.

Keep the monkeys in there cages for the rest of the season no one wants to watch them drag there arms down the court anyway. If you support the NBA you should be taken out back with the rest of the players and owners and be shot immediately.

Such an intelligent post. Can't understand why your reputation is only at 39.

This person is correct!  30 teams = 15 games, 15 teams vs 15 teams.  Therefore, 15 x 2 = 30.  The writter and editor of this article need math classes.

30 games = 60 teams, which means every team played two games. 60 games would in fact mean 4 games per team

Huh? Your right, you aren't a math genius. There are 30 NBA teams. 30x2 = 60

I'm not a math genius or anything, but if there are 60 preseason games, then each team would have 4 preseason games. If they are only playing two preseason games, then there will only be 30 preseason games. Unless each team is only playing against themselves, but I am 100% sure that is not the case.
