January 20 News Today, NBA President Adam Silver accepted an interview before the NBA Paris game
Speaking of the Lakers forward LeBron James is about to break the all-time scoring record, Silver said: “There is no doubt that we will suspend this game and make sure we will record history, basketball, nets, jerseys, etc. We will make the game
Stop and make sure we do our job as NBA archivists. At the same time, they’re playing against a team that really wants to win and they don’t want to be distracted. Most likely, we’ll be at that moment
Just do something, but then we’ll plan a bigger celebration.”
James is on track to break the record in early February — and if he does, Silver’s larger celebration could happen later that month during NBA All-Star Weekend in Salt Lake City.
Additionally, Silver said that with James on the verge of breaking the record, his games will be the most widely broadcast around the world.
