Live NBA broadcasts have a long history in the US, dating back to the league’s inception in 1920.
Now, the league has a long list of players on its roster, and the Golden State Warriors’ Steph Curry is a perfect fit for the award.
The 2016-17 NBA season kicks off on January 25th, and many teams have already started preparations.
The following are the players who are likely to be named the NBA’s best players of the year:Golden State Warriors guard Klay Thompson (23 points, 13 rebounds) and Houston Rockets forward Patrick Beverley (22 points, 11 rebounds)The Houston Rockets won the NBA Finals last year, so the team is familiar with how to win.
Thompson and Beverley both scored in double figures and played a pivotal role in the Rockets’ historic run.
They both have huge shoes to fill, however, as the Rockets lost their first game of the season on Saturday night against the New Orleans Pelicans.
The Warriors are already a top-10 team, and will look to repeat the feat on Sunday against the Miami Heat.
The Houston Texans are also in the running for the best team, but are coming off a disappointing loss in the AFC Championship Game.
The team is looking to bounce back from a disappointing season, and they are looking to repeat last year’s performance.
Houston is a good team to look at as a potential top-four seed, and has a very talented roster.
The Texans are currently ranked No. 10 in the West, and are coming into the season with a lot of momentum.
The Los Angeles Clippers are looking like a top five seed.
The Clippers are currently looking to become the first team since the 2012-13 LA Lakers to make the playoffs in back-to-back seasons.
They finished the season 6-8 and have already clinched home-court advantage against the Minnesota Timberwolves.
The defending champs will look for a huge win Sunday night against Miami, and could potentially make the postseason with a victory.

The Knicks will look a lot different in 2017-18, however.
The club has lost the last four games by a combined score of 89-78.
The season-ending loss to the Houston Rockets on Friday night left New York with just five wins from their last nine games.
The New York Knicks are one of the favorites to reach at least the NBA playoffs in the coming seasons.
Anthony Davis is one of those guys.
Davis had 22 points, 14 rebounds, and seven assists, as New York beat the Cleveland Cavaliers on Saturday.
He also had three blocks.
The Atlanta Hawks will look back at their 2017-19 season with some pride.
The Hawks won their first NBA championship in 2017, and it was their first playoff appearance since 2014-15.
However, they are still searching for their first title since the 2015-16 season.
The Atlanta Hawks have a strong core of players and will need to add to that in order to reach a third straight NBA Finals.
The Detroit Pistons are looking good for the second straight season.
They have a good group of players, and should be one of several teams to make a run in the East.
they need to improve on their defense and shooting.
Detroit finished the year with the NBA No. 1 defense, but it’s no secret that the team needs to improve.
Detroit’s defense was one of its most effective strengths in 2017.
It allowed the fewest 3-pointers per game in the NBA, which is impressive.
They also had the highest defensive rating in the league.
Detroit should look to build on this momentum in 2017 as they attempt to make another run in a strong Eastern Conference.
The Miami Heat will be one team that is looking at a lot improvement in 2018-19.
The Miami Heat finished the 2017-2018 season 10-11, but they should be more motivated to take a step forward in 2018.
They added the best offensive player in the 2018 draft class in Tyler Johnson, and this year should be even better with the addition of two All-Stars in Dwyane Wade and Goran Dragic.
The Heat is looking forward to facing the Chicago Bulls on Sunday night, and looking to take back home court advantage against one of their division rivals.
The Philadelphia 76ers are another team that should be looking to make some major improvements in 2018, as they are currently in the midst of a losing streak.
The 76ers won the 2017 NBA Finals, but have been on a downward spiral for years.
The Sixers are also looking to finish the season strong, and hope to take home home court in the 2019 NBA Finals with a win over the Miami Dolphins.
The Chicago Bulls are looking for some improvement
