If you are an avid NBA follower, then the news of the shutdown of your popular NBA Streams subreddit on 17th June 2019 due to copyright issues is not new. This is unfortunate for people who admire this sports site which was a very famous one with more than 400k followers.

For many NBA fans, the subreddit NBA Streams was a go-to destination every night during basketball season. But fans going to the subreddit for the start of the 2019-20 season will notice it's no longer active.
That's because at the end of the 2018-19 season, Reddit laid down the hammer and banned the subreddit. When you go to the page it reads, "This subreddit was banned under Reddit's Repeat Copyright Infringement Policy."
We reached out to Reddit at the time, and the company declined a public statement. But a spokesperson did refer to the company's 2018 Transparency Report, which shows DMCA (Digital Millennium Copyright Act) notices spiking in recent years. In 2016, there were 1,155 DMCA notices, which resulted in 610 content removals. In 2018, there were 9,534 DMCA notices, which resulted in 26,234 content removals.
As for why NBAStreams was banned, you probably already know the answer — it's illegal in practice. But here's what the official Reddit policy says:
Our policy is to close the accounts of users, in appropriate circumstances, who have repeatedly been charged with copyright infringement. Sometimes a repeat infringement problem is limited to one user and we close just that user’s account. Other times, the problem pervades a whole subreddit community and we close the subreddit.

What is r/NBAstreams?
The subreddit r/NBAstreams was home to over 400,000 followers who loved basketball, especially the NBA league. The ban of subreddit was because the users shared live links to stream NBA matches for free.
It is also proclaimed that Reddit NBA Streams generates hundreds of millions of visits to live streaming platforms every season. In popularity, it was similar to the long-gone subreddit SoccerStreams.
Why was Reddit NBA Stream Popular?
First of all the NBA fans, watching all the matches live and legally is a costly deal. Even if you get the league pass you won’t be able to witness the complete matches without any blackout which makes it difficult for fans to follow the sport legally.
We don’t support the streaming of copyrighted content without the permission of its owners but had NBA broadcasters offered the matches at a fair price without any blackouts the number of users visiting NBA Stream subreddit would have been way too less.
And, for NBA aficionados out there the subreddit NBAstreams was the most desirable platform to find live streaming links of NBA matches. r/NBAstream had over 400,000 subscribers.
