Opening night and Christmas games
I don't know if this has already been posted, but what do you all think of these key games on the schedule for 2013-2014?
Chicago @ Miami
Magic @ Pacers
Clippers @ Lakers
Chicago @ Brooklyn
OKC @ NY
Miami @ Lakers
Houston @ San Antonio
Clippers @ Golden State
D Rose, Noah, Deng and crew are going to come out with something to prove against the Heat on opening night. I assume this will be ring night for the Heat. I wouldn't be surprised if they come out sluggish and the Bulls take them by a comfortable margin in this one. They want to send a message and set the tone for the entire season in this one.
I hate how we have to have the Lakers on all the special days. I know for Ratings or whatever, but these Lakers won't even be a playoff team, they probably won't have Kobe on opening night, they'll be pretty unentertaining, and they'll more than likely get blown out in both games. Why make the Heat players fly across the country for a Christmas day game anyways..
I donno if I'm that excited for Magic vs. Pacers....
I think Miami and Chicago should have been a christmas matchup rather than the Lakers going with the Heat.
No offense to Laker fans but compared to the Bulls, they have almost no rivalry with the Heat in these past few seasons. The Bulls and Heat have always ended up being an amazing matchup
I know it is already decided but if I could chose I would want
brooklyn vs the knicks- rivalry
Chicago vs the heat- rivalry
thunder vs the spurs- great established teams
rockets vs the clippers- most improved teams
Pacers vs the warriors- Best of the rest and a great offense versus a great defense
for the christmas day games, then the NBA would own me all day. I dont care what order those games are in or who is home or away. I just want them to play each other. I personally think the lakers wont be good so I wouldnt want them on christmas day.
Clippers vs Warriors > All Star Game
Lakers do not deserve so many national tv games.
I dont think Dwight did the Lakers dirty...they just assume every star will sign with them. They rolled the dice and came up with snake eyes. Thats the chance you take when you build your team through free agency and trading your draft picks away.
