Adam Silver to miss NBA Finals Game 6, potential trophy presentation

The NBA champion trophy will be in attendance at the TD Garden tonight, but the NBA commissioner will not.

The league announced that Adam Silver will not be attending Thursday’s Game 6 of the NBA Finals in Boston due to NBA health and safety protocols.

So should the Warriors defeat the Celtics to win the championship at TD Garden, they will reportedly be presented with the Larry O’Brien Trophy by NBA Assistant Commissioner Mark Tatum, who will do the podium duties for the NBA draft lottery and the NBA second round accepts NBA draft.

Silver missed Game 5 of the NBA Finals due to protocols, though the league hasn’t announced whether the commissioner has COVID-19 or has been in close contact with someone who has tested positive.

Silver, NBA commissioner since February 2014, had previously attended all finals games during his tenure. He presented the Warriors with the championship trophy in 2015, 2017 and 2018.

There’s no word yet on Silver’s potential availability should there be a Game 7 at the Chase Center on Sunday.
