The 2021 NBA Finals is about to get underway, so naturally commissioner Adam Silver has to answer a multitude of questions before Game 1 tips between the Phoenix Suns and Milwaukee Bucks. Among those was on whether or not the NBA play-in tournament will return in the 2021-22 season. Silver told reporters that it’s likely to happen after they found the play-in tournament a success in 2021. That comment will likely be taken with some criticism.
