NBA and Millennials

NBA and Millennials January 20, 2017

From USA Today:

A 2015 study by Microsoft revealed that the average person’s attention span in this wild world of technology and social media is down to eight seconds — which is less than that of a goldfish.

If you’re an NBA fan and you’re still reading this (and kudos to you, if you are) …  there’s no need to worry. NBA commissioner Adam Silver has it covered….

“It’s something that I know all of sports are looking at right now, and that is the format of the game and the length of time it takes to play the game,” Silver said. “Obviously people, particularly millennials, have increasingly short attention spans, so it’s something as a business we need to pay attention to. … When the last few minutes of the game take an extraordinary amount of time, sometimes it’s incredibly interesting for fans, other times it’s not.”

Well done, commissioner Silver. Well done.

What happens to golf, Commish?
