How Tinder Made The NBA Better

Tom Haberstroh wrote about the “Tinderization” of the NBA:

  • Instead by texting their date and leaving a key at the front desk, they can have someone in their room waiting for them the moment they return to their hotel.
  • The rise of chartered jets – where coaches can control diet and alcohol intake – has also boosted sleep levels.
