It's NBA schedule release day, and in what is hopefully becoming an annual tradition, NBA Scheduling Czars, Sr. VP of Game Schedule Management Tom Carelli and Sr. VP of Basketball Strategy & Analytics Evan Wasch, return to shed some light on the blood, sweat, and tears that go into scheduling an NBA season. They discuss the reduction of back-to-back games, exploring earlier start times, focusing on player health and mental well-being, communicating and working with teams and arenas, identifying key match-ups and narratives, prioritizing high-profile and nationally-prominent games, and the factors considered when booking NBA travel. They also answer a few fan questions from twitter. via Knit
