The NBA is so important for the young generation and Apple knows this.

A couple million people came out for the Raptors parade in Toronto, so this can't be understated.

As if we don't already have enough hip-hop shoved down our throats in this damn streaming service.

What is it with you guys and your preoccupation with things being shoved down your throats. It's weird. Music goes in your ears, bud.

NBA is so important to at least 2 major demographics that have nothing to do nor restricted to age. I’m a Canadian citizen and even I know this, unsure if you’re American and didn’t realize this



You’ll always see them but they’ve not had anything worthy on their given plates to hate about. I’m not hater, in fact I love Eddie cause he doesn’t muck about or hide behind rhetoric nor make excuses - he’s always gotten the job done! Online store, retail store transactions, App Store, Apple Music services and iTunes have all over the last 2 decades plus have performed rock solid (iMessage as well) even if we include all the very minimal issues or outages! It’s been bullet proof comparatively to any other competitions online offerings!!

but only Cue can be this big an NBA team fan and STILL wear sandals on front row lmao! (That my fitness takes balls)!

And one of them demos are kids ages 6-14.
