Following an epic 2016 NBA Finals, the Association continued to trend during a time when other professional sports Associations start to decline in popularity. However, the NBA isn’t like the other three major professional North American sports leagues that typically see a decrease in headlines following the championship of their respective  leagues. That’s because there is very little time between the last NBA Finals game that takes place and the start of the following year’s offseason.

Thus, fans almost immediately get to see the increasingly popular NBA Draft followed by the craziest free agency period sports in the USA has to offer. That’s because the player movement in the NBA happens exponentially more often than in baseball, football or hockey. And it’s not just random players, but the best players in the Association that take their talents to other teams.

Which was the case this year with former league MVP, Kevin Durant. Following the precedent set by players like LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony (forced trade), Chris Bosh, LaMarcus Aldridge, Dwight Howard and others, KD became the latest star player to leave the franchise that drafted and developed him.

Which leads us to the question of whether this is good for the sport or not. NBA commissioner Adam Silver weighed in on his thoughts, and it seems that a change might be coming sooner rather than later.

Silver would go on to focus on the notion that every NBA team should have a real shot at retaining their homegrown players.
