NBA: 12 months

NBA action all year round?! Possible! ...if you know the calendar.

Here it is...

SEPTEMBER: Training Camp

This is when players report back to their teams and start practice.

OCTOBER: NBA Pre-season

If the NBA was a play, then the pre-season is the rehearsal.

NOVEMBER: NBA season starts

It's game time!

DECEMBER: Christmas Games

The best teams, the best players, and the best match-ups usually play on Christmas Day.

JANUARY: All-Star Nominees

Expect a lot of highlight plays in this month because players are starting to market themselves in order to make the All-Star Game.

Quick Note: To be an all-star player, you'll have to get "voted-in" by the fans. More highlights equals more votes.

FEBRUARY: Trade deadline; All-Star Game

Blockbuster trades usually happen in this month.

You can also look forward to the following: Rookie Game, Three-Point Contest; Dunk Contest; and All-Star Game.

MARCH and APRIL: March Madness, Jordan Brand Classic, and McDonald's All-American Games

March Madness is the college version of the NBA playoffs.

High School all stars can be seen playing in the Jordan Classic and McDonald's All-American games.

Why are these events important? Because they're the future NBA stars.
