(BlackPressRadio.net) – In what has now become the longest season in the history of the National Basketball Association, the 2020 NBA Finals marked the one year mark for the 2019-2020 season. As long as it seems, NBA Commissioner Adam Silver acknowledged it’s not over yet.
September 2020 – just 48 hours before the season started – Livers interviewed Commissioner Silver.
“I remember at the end saying to him: ‘Will we see Carmelo back in the NBA?’
He said, “I surely hope so. He’s one of my favorite players.” Seeing Adam at the Pre-Game press conference brought us full circle. – a full 360 – but I have to admit my heart sank when he said, “…we still have two weeks to go…” I’m excited for the 2019-2020 come to a close. We all need the break but I’ll never forget covering the NBA Bubble. None of us will. Melo made it back into the league and played in the Playoffs. It’s a perfect way example of how anything is possible.”
The Black Sportz Network delights fans with LIVE coverage of the LONGEST SEASON in NBA History with reports by DC Livers, the Longest Working Black Woman Covering the NBA.
“We kicked off the 2019-2020 NBA Season on September 30, 2019 with Media Day for Knicks and other teams,” said DC Livers, who is the longest working Black woman covering the NBA. “Exactly one year later on September 30, 2020, we’re kicking off Game 1 of the NBA Finals. I think I speak for all of us reporters when I say: We is tired. We is hungry. We is over it. But we’re all ready proud to have been part of this historic journey.”
“It’s true that coronavirus has deeply impacted how we do our jobs but it’s also ravaged our lives. We lost our beloved sports photographer #AnthonyCausi to #Coronavirus on Easter. Before that Karl Anthony Towns lost his mother. Players have lost cousins, grandparents and loved ones. I’m dedicating this season to the people on every inch of the globe for allowing us to do such a frivolous job while bringing happiness to so many including ourselves,” Livers said.
