The NBA 2019/20 season has resumed after nearly five months break occasioned by the Covid-19 pandemic. Pay Television Company StarTimes will broadcast the games through the ESPN channel.

The NBA games will be unlike any previous year with COVID-19 SOPs keeping fans away and the action taking centre stage at the ESPN Wide World of Sports complex, inside Disney World in Orlando, Florida.

The StarTimes Uganda Marketing Director, Isma Lule noted that basketball is rapidly gaining popularity in Uganda, as StarTimes we are excited to bring the best Basket Ball league in the World to Ugandans. Stars like James Lebron and Giannis are such an inspiration in the basket Ball community. The Action will be live on ESPN Channel on Classic , Smart Bouquet and on Smart phone via the StarTimes GO App

Only the best 22 of the league’s 30 teams will participate. Each team will play eight games to finish the regular season. From these, the top seven teams in each conference will advance, with the final eighth seed in each conference being determined by a potential play-in tournament before the traditional 16-team playoffs.

LeBron James’ LA Lakers are the outstanding favorites to take the title. When the NBA season was postponed, the Lakers sat atop the West with a 49-14 mark.

In the West, the other contender is the Clippers. Prior to the beginning of the 2019-20 season, the Clippers were considered favourites to win the title after they added to their ranks Kawhi Leonard and Paul George.

The only squad with a better mark than the Lakers is the Milwaukee Bucks. Led by the “Greek Freak” Giannis Antetokounmpo, they have benefited from playing in the significantly weaker Eastern Conference.

NBA on StarTimes is a continuous assurance to our customers, that we shall always give you affordable quality sports.
