The league will also be working with Twitter and Vine to bring back “KicksCam” after debuting it at NBA All-Star 2015 in New York City.  @NBA will tweet out Vines of the players’ sneakers just before they step on the court each night of NBA All-Star 2016.  To embrace its global social media fanbase, the NBA was the first professional sports league to include its social media handle on its official game ball when it added the @NBA handle prior to the 2014-15 season.
