The letter states,

“Dear Commissioner Silver, My name is Riley Roussell. I am 7 years old. I love the NBA. Especially the playoffs. My only problem is some games start too late. Sometimes after 9 p.m. My parents make me go to bed while they stay up and enjoy watching it. Can you please make the games earlier for kids on the east coast? Thanks!!”
