    The Definitive Bubbleball Book and The Future of the NBA's Revenue

    The Definitive Bubbleball Book and The Future of the NBA's Revenue

    The Washington Post's Ben Golliver joins Hacker Noon CEO David Smooke to discuss the process of writing his new book, "Bubbleball: Inside the NBA's Fight to Save a Season," and the pandemic's impact on the NBA's revenue. With no/few fans in the stands and the decline in the number of games from the pandemic, the National Basketball Association is expected to loss about $4 billion dollars in 2021. In addition to discussing his bubble writing and publishing process, we talk about the NBA's options to stimulate revenue, such as expansion fees for new franchises and how to make substantial investments into the NBA's digital experience.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Cool to hear the team. Have been publishing stories on Hacker Noon for a few years. Great to see and hear the actual voices of the team. Utsav, Natasha, Linh, David - see you back on the internet!

Rodney McKeown ,

Good

As an immigrant, loved hearing more of Linh's story, but overall the feed is little too crypto centric.

Laendra11 ,

Great!

Juan Benet interview was great. Surprised how humble he is - and how willing he is to explain and breakdown how complex things work.
