The 2019-20 NBA season was the 74th season of the National Basketball Association (NBA). The regular season began on October 22, 2019, and originally was supposed to end on April 15, 2020. However, the season was suspended on March 11 as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The 2020 NBA All-Star Game was played on February 16 at the United Center in Chicago, Illinois, and was won by Team LeBron, 157–155. The playoffs were originally scheduled to begin on April 18, and end with the NBA Finals in June. At the time of the suspension, teams had played between 63 and 67 games.

On June 4, the NBA Board of Governors approved a plan to restart the season on July 30, and the National Basketball Players Association approved this plan the next day. Under the plan, 22 teams played eight additional regular season games to determine playoff seeding, and 16 teams entered a conventional post-season tournament. All game play took place in the NBA Bubble, the isolation zone specifically created for NBA operations. The Finals ended on October 11, 2020, 355 days after the October 22, 2019, regular-season opening day, and 377 days after the first pre-season games on September 30, 2019. This was the longest season in NBA history.
