This is because Twitch has announced that they are in a partnership with the USA basketball team for the 2020 Olympics. This means that leading up to the games in Tokyo next year, fans of the game will be able to tune into Twitch where they’ll be able to watch all kinds of events related to the team.
According to Twitch, “Twitch will be Team USA’s home for everything from player camps and practices, exhibition games against other national teams, and even a first look at the new 3 on 3 format coming to the Olympics next year. It’s all going down on /NBA, but everyone is also invited to co-stream everything with your communities.”
If this sounds like something you might be interested in, the first exhibition game will be played against Team Australia on the 22nd of August, 7:30pm PT. You can follow /NBA if you’d like to get more updates on future games and events.
