With the NBA Finals starting on Thursday night that also meant it was time for commissioner Adam Silver’s annual Finals press conference in which he answers questions about the state of the NBA and other topics concerning the league ahead of the draft, free agency, and the rest of the offseason.

Silver addressed the media in Oakland and discussed everything from LeBron James’ powerful statement on racism in America, to the “one and done” rule, to the possibility of the NBA expanding beyond 30 teams in the future. On that latter note, Silver quickly explained why the league would not be considering expansion in the near future, noting that the first question of his press conference was about the lack of competitive balance in the league currently among other reasons.
