This post is for them, those who have never before heard of this subreddit. The subreddit r / NBAstreams had 400,000 followers who were particularly fond of speaking about the NBA league and basketball. Since people used to post live AceStream links where others could stream NBA matches without paying anything, the reason for this subreddit being blocked, that's where the problem began. Live streaming platforms such as AceStream can not be banned because they operate on a peer-to-peer basis. So, the famous subreddits where live streaming links are being shared are now banned. Reddit NBA Stream alone has been estimated to produce hundreds of millions of visitors per season to live streaming sites. It was the same in success as the long-gone SoccerStreams.
