In the past, Adam Silver, NBA commissioner, has talked about his desires to introduce micropayment options, "I think you're going to get to the point where somebody wants to watch the last five minutes of the game, and they go click, they'll pay a set price for five minutes as opposed to what they would pay for two hours of the game. From games on TNT and NBA TV or the volume of out-of-market games through NBA League Pass, to the defining moments of a thrilling matchup with a compelling story arc, we'll have it covered". Giving fans access to the most exciting part of the game - the fourth quarter - plays into their growing preference for seeking out online sports highlights, interviews and bloopers.

Silver said they are still working on pricing but it is something they would really like to be rolled out next year and they are hoping it's just another way that fans can watch the game.
