The NBA launched Latin Nights during the 2006-07 NBA season. They did this to recognize fans in Latin America as well as U.S. Hispanic communities. Teams will host in-arena Latin-themed activities, including music, performances, and giveaways. So basically this has been a fixture for the league for the most part. Team will be using El and Los in front of their respective team names. Its kind of comical doing this considering they should change english name to spanish. For example the Bulls are called Los Bulls instead of Los Toros. Overall its great that the league has the Latin Nights but it would be better if they can change team names to match the Spanish terms.
