As sports rights prove the small screen game changer, the ball is in Disney’s court when it comes to the NBA. “We are interested in a renewal with the NBA,” said CEO Bob Chapek today after the company issued its surprisingly strong quarterly earnings reports. However, for all his praise of the ratings from the basketball league’s Golden State Warriors winning finals this year, the almost always circumspect exec added the caveat that “we will only do it if it is accretive to shareholder value.”
Whispers are that the league is looking at an up-to-$75 billion payout from potential bidders. While saying today that Disney is “still bullish on sports,” Chapek would not be drawn deeper into discussions on a new deal. “A continued relationship with the NBA would be something that is really attractive to us,” was about all that the CEO would add.
Watching NBA players in action isn’t always financially feasible for many basketball fans. But for just 15 dollars, fans at Highland High got to see NBA stars like former Ute Kyle Kuzma of the Washington Wizards, his former Utah teammate Delon Wright, who is also with the Wizards, Denver Nuggets star Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, and NBA Rookie of the Year Scottie Barnes put on a show Tuesday night.
“It feels good to put on a show,” said Barnes, a budding star with the Toronto Raptors. “Do it for the kids, do it for the people that can’t got out and see an NBA game. This is a good opportunity for them to watch us play here, and we had a good amount of talent in the gym tonight.”
As these pro-am leagues continue to grow, expect to see even more NBA players join in. “For sure,” Barnes said. “I love playing in the pro-ams, these pick-up games. So, next off season, I’ll probably do it way more.”

Moritz Wagner: “Spending the summer with the guys who make this experience quite unique was my highlight of the year last year and was something I looked forward to with excitement all season. The fact that my ankle isn’t healed is difficult to accept at first, but it’s part of the game. This team is special and I’m looking forward to watching the boys play and supporting them”.
Just hours after the announcement about Mo Wagner missing the Eurobasket, the German team bounced back with an 87-83 win over Belgium in a very close game. Franz Wagner with 23 points and five rebounds and free agent Dennis Schroder with 21 points and seven assists got the job done. Daniel Theis added 8 points for the winning side, which didn’t use Karim Jallow, Maodo Lo, Johannes Thiemann, and Johannes Voigtmann.
