James can continue to climb the ladder in two accumulation categories this season. He enters the campaign third all time in minutes played with 52,139, needing 2,714 more to pass Malone for second. He would have to be in the lineup for around 75 games to do that. Abdul-Jabbar tops the list with 57,446 minutes. Speaking of games played, he is 14th on the all-time list with 1,366. If he plays in 59 contests this season, he would move up to eighth, passing Clifford Robinson, Reggie Miller, Jason Kidd, Tim Duncan, Jason Terry and Kevin Willis.
If he averages a more modest 24 points per game and misses 15% to 20% of the season, James would be nearing the plateau somewhere in the range of Game Nos. 65 to 68. That coincides with a homestand in early March when the Lakers host the Golden State Warriors (March 5), Memphis Grizzlies (March 7), Toronto Raptors (March 10) and New York Knicks (March 12).
The NBA is rolling out a newly redesigned app Tuesday that it hopes will become a one-stop shop for its fans and serve as its digital flagship. The NBA App, which took more than two-and-a-half years to design and finish, will serve as a portal to League Pass and NBA TV, and as a store for short- and long-form content. In creation and in its effect, it has the look and feel at times of the NBA’s attempt at making a social media app for its fans, with vertical content and an interface that mimics the ones seen on Instagram and TikTok. The NBA debuts at the same time as the league has made other changes to its digital offerings. It drastically lowered the price of NBA League Pass this season, down over 50 percent to $99.99. It also cut down on the latency between live games and the broadcasts on League Pass by half, promising a faster and higher quality feed.
The NBA App will also allow users to connect to limited live action, but it will allow them to can access games with their League Pass subscription, and it will have different streams of games like a betting stream or a strategy stream. Most importantly, the games will be shown with less latency and in better quality. Last season, the latency was roughly 45 seconds to a minute behind; the latency speed this season should be on par with traditional broadcasts. “We know that people are doing things direct to consumer with merging of those places, and the plan is to continue to integrate and bring that more in,” Benyarko said. “And we established a membership program to provide that connective tissue to get us started. But the idea is that when we think about direct to consumer moving forward, it’s going to be way more than just League Pass or NBA TV.”
The NBA will also debut a new membership program called NBA ID which will link all of its products together and is free to sign up for. It will allow fans to buy products like new content and win member-based experiences. Fans will be able to get a customized experience in rewards and viewing. It is a part of the NBA’s attempt to build a more personalized app and bring a customized ecosystem to each user. Fans will be able to find content personalized to their favorite teams and players and have new personalized franchises to follow — a “For You” feed. The league will produce automated highlight packages for specific players, and not just stars, based on the user’s preferences. But it will also offer content produced by teams and by fans on social media.
