"The NBA Social Media Awards was developed as a fun way to recognize our fans, players and teams which have contributed to the league's leadership position in the social space," said Christina Miller, SVP and GM, NBA Digital. "The NBA is consistently at the forefront of innovation and this show will capture the passion and influence the entire NBA community demonstrates across a wide array of social media platforms."
