Basketball News: After a year off due to Covid-19, Formula One returns to Circuit of the Americas for the US Grand Prix. Surprisingly, the NBA’s 75th season has also begun this week. To commemorate the two milestones, the NBA and Formula One have established a special campaign and content agreement ahead of the 2021 US Grand Prix. F1 cars will be seen in bespoke liveries representing each of the league’s 30 teams, which will be revealed on the NBA and F1 social media accounts.

Furthermore, on October 21, the majority of Formula 1 racing drivers will compete in a free throw challenge at the Circuit of the Americas paddock’s NBA 75th Anniversary-themed basketball half-court. In addition, many NBA veterans will be on hand to greet the drivers and give them shooting pointers on how to make the freest throws out of ten. As a result of the charity game, $20,000 will be given to the winner’s charity of choice.

Because the NBA’s 75th season has been designated as ‘NBA 75,’ a list of the top 75 players of all time will be unveiled on October 19. Giannis Antetokounmpo’s Milwaukee Bucks faced the Brooklyn Nets in the season opener of the 2021-22 season at the Fiserv Forum, where the ring ceremony took place.

During the season opener, AlphaTauri’s Pierre Gasly and Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc were photographed alongside Tony Parker of the San Antonio Spurs.

The drama of the 2021 F1 season, on the other hand, will finally go to Austin as the season’s business end approaches. Max Verstappen leads the Driver’s Championship by 6 points, while his Mercedes teammate Lewis Hamilton is considered the favourite, having won 5 of the previous 8 races in the United States.

Having said that, the NBA’s 75th anniversary will be commemorated during the 2021-22 season, with the ‘NBA75’ squad being chosen by a distinguished panel of current and past players, media, general managers, coaches, and franchise executives.
