PBT Extra: Popularity of Stephen Curry evident in new NBA schedule

3 Comments

Stephen Curry is the second most popular player in the NBA. If you want evidence, look at the NBA schedule — only one team has as many nationally televised games as LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers, and it’s Curry and the Warriors. The NBA is putting Curry front and center.

Jenna Corrado and I discuss this in the latest PBT Extra, looking at highlights of the NBA’s schedule.

In addition to the Curry/LeBron Christmas Day showdown, I’m looking forward to Nov. 11 when DeAndre Jordan has to play in Dallas, and to see the (likely) emotional farewell for Kobe Bryant on April 13 if this is his last game in the NBA.
