Tonight at 7 p.m. ET, the NBA will release the schedule for the 2012-13 season. This is not such a momentous occassion. After all, the 82-game schedule rarely changes as teams play each other virtually the same amount every year. There is little variability in a team's schedule.
Some of the schedule is already leaking out too. We know the Nets will open the Barclays Center in Brooklyn against the Knicks. We know the champion Heat will get their rings against the Celtics in Miami on October 30 and will play the Thunder in Miami on Christmas Day and then make the return trip to Oklahoma City on Valentines' Day.
Other than that the schedule is a complete mystery. And because we love storylines, let me suggest a few games the NBA should consider:
December 14: Magic @ Lakers; January 14: Magic @ Nets; Or three straight home games before the trade deadline featuring the Lakers, Nets and Rockets visiting Orlando
Everyone -- I mean EVERYONE -- is tired of the Dwight Howard trade...
BEST OF MAXIM
"Linsanity" became the talk of the NBA last season, and even the point guard has admitted some of the attention got to his head.
"Linsanity" took everyone by storm last season -- Jeremy Lin included.
Say what you want about Lin's basketball potential, but the Harvard product is one of the more grounded players in the NBA. So, despite his controversial exit from New York, which was the subject of much debate, he's willing to look back candidly at what has been a crazy year.
Knicks 2011- 2012 season perfect wasn’t even the word to go with it. In a time of injuries and confusion of what will help make this Knicks season better. In comes Jeremy Lin a person who was undrafted cut off two teams and been in the development league a lot of times. I sat and listened to numerous interviews on espn New York and was hoping to hear the Knicks will match the Rockets...
The Rockets have been at the front of the offseason. Whether it was getting involved in Dwight Howard rumors or going after and signing Jeremy Lin, you cannot fault Daryl Morey for going out there and being active. Houston has been a middle of the Western Conference team for the better part of a decade. Always good enough to compete for a Playoff spot, never quite good enough to...
Unlike the U.S. Postal Services, there are no delivery issues with the Celtics mailbag. The questions have not come as frequently since the season came to a close, which is not surprising considering the disappointing way the season ended for the Celtics. If it took you a while to get over that Game 7 defeat, we understand. Still, a lot has happened between now and then. The Celtics...
The New York Knicks 2012-2013 regular season schedule was announced last night.
Their first game of the season will start November 1st against the Brooklyn Nets in the new Barclays Center.
In all honesty, I expected the Knicks to play the Nets in Brooklyn. This is the matchup that the NBA wanted to schedule on opening night.
Let's hope this starts a new rivalry between...
Looks like Carmelo Anthony is playing the “woe is me” card again.
There has been speculation that Melo did not want Jeremy Lin back with the Knicks and that that is one of the reasons the team didn’t match Houston’s offer sheet for the point guard. Speaking from London on Friday, Anthony denied that is the case.
“Believe it or not, I was one of the true supporters of...
After prying away Jeremy Lin from the New York Knicks, the Rockets have now managed to do the same with big man Omer Asik from the Chicago Bulls.
The Bulls decided not to match the three-year, $25 million offer sheet given to Asik by the Rockets. The offer now popularly known as the “poison pill” contract [...]
Five things I'm thinking about this weekend while wondering if all the area football teams are excited about the season, in much better shape than last year and are planning on being balanced on offense while playing physical defense.
1. Something that seems true (and totally is): The Houston Texans, as we have known them, no longer exist.
Houston this year is a trendy Super...
1.Thunder at Heat (Dec. 25th)
These teams are still clearly the two best teams in the NBA. This will be a rematch of last year’s NBA final in which the Heat won in 5 games. All 5 games were pretty close. LeBron James finally got his ring could this be the year Kevin Durant gets his? Durant and James are also very good friends.
2.Celtics at Heat (Oct. 30th)
