The NBA released the 2013-14 schedule today. There were balloons and I think they launched Adam Silver into orbit. It was a whole deal. As suspected, Bulls vs. Heat is the opening night match up.
And here are the coveted Christmas Day games:
Chicago Bulls at Brooklyn Nets: These two teams first match up since the Playoffs not counting your league on NBA 2K.
Oklahoma City Thunder vs. New York Knicks: Carmelo and Durant dueling on Broadway on Christmas day? Put a bow on it. It’s already under the tree.
Miami Heat at Los Angeles Lakers: I guess they have to give Jack Nicholson somewhere to go on Christmas? Take this time to catch up with family. Or hide in the bathroom until…
Houston Rockets at San Antonio Spurs: Here is hoping Pop sits his starters and they cancel the game in favor of an eating contest between Boris Diaw and David Stern’s whole family.
Los Angeles Clippers vs. Golden State Warriors: NOW we’re talking. Great match up, great atmosphere, no LMFAO music, and fun players. All to be ruined, I’m sure, by sleeved jerseys.
