NBA will return to its usual calendar starting next season

By Eurohoops team/

While the ongoing season is midway through the playoffs, the NBA has planned out key dates for the next one and it will return to its normal calendar, per Shams Charania.

The key dates for the 2021-22 NBA season would be as follows:

September 28: Training camp starts
October 19: Regular season starts
April 16: Playoffs start
June 2: Finals Game 1
June 19: Finals Game 7
June 23: 2022 NBA Draft

As a reminder and a comparison, the 2020-21 campaign has been played in a different format. The regular season was reduced to 72 games for each team and began on December 22, 2020. The season started just 72 days after the completion of the 2020 finals, making it the shortest off-season in league history. The playoffs started in late May and will be finished by July 22.
