Notable occurrences

*The Minnesota Timberwolves and the Orlando Magic enter the NBA as the league's 26th and 27th franchises.
*The 1990 NBA All-Star Game was played at the Miami Arena in Miami, Florida, with the East defeating the West 130-113. Magic Johnson of the Los Angeles Lakers takes home the game's MVP award.
*The Charlotte Hornets are aligned in the Midwest Division in the Western Conference. Charlotte would be aligned in the Central Division for good starting next year. The league had placed the four new teams in different divisions to spread them out over their first few seasons.
*"The NBA on CBS" concludes its 17 year run (dating back to 1973). The program is succeeded by "The NBA on NBC".
*The NBA adopts the FIBA rule and a mandating clocks register tenths of seconds in the final minute of a period. This rule turns controversial during the season because of clock calibration problems in many venues; following a January 15, 1990 game between the New York Knicks and the Chicago Bulls where Trent Tucker sank a three-point basket with the ball put in play with one-tenth of a second remaining, the NBA mandates clock calibration and prohibits any shot made when the ball is put in play with less than three-tenths of a second remaining from counting unless it is a dunk or tip-in.
