The schedule for the NBA's restart is set. Here are the must-watch games as teams push for the postseason.
Ten years ago, on live television, LeBron James made his now infamous decision to leave Cleveland and "take his talents to South Beach." It was one of the most consequential, most awkward, and most divisive moments in sports media history. The long, drawn-out broadcast drew ire from Cavaliers fans - who felt their homegrown star had betrayed them - and also from casual observers who disliked the idea of an athlete wielding that level of influence. So how did "The Decision" actually come to be? Ahead of this Sunday's new episode of "Backstory," Don Van Natta takes us behind the production, introduces its key players, and examines how the event forever changed the way NBA stars interact with the public.

The NBA is finally set to return in July, and players and owners have agreed on a format for the comeback. But which teams actually stand to benefit from the standings, what's the fate of those facing play-in games, and where does the draft lottery come into play? ESPN basketball insider Zach Lowe (and host of "The Lowe Post" podcast) explains what's at stake in the East and West. Plus, which bubble teams could make it in, and whether this year's NBA champion deserves an asterisk due to the weirdness of the season.
Adam Silver, in an appearance on TNT's "Inside the NBA" Thursday night, said there is a chance that older NBA head coaches won't be able to be on the bench when the league resumes play due to concerns about the coronavirus.
Now that the NBA officially plans to resume its regular season at Disney World at the end of July, Brian Windhorst, Jackie MacMullan and Tim MacMahon try to answer looming questions about the Disney complex, hotel accommodations, coronavirus testing, playoff seeding plans, the TV programming schedule, the loss of home court advantage and more.
