Awaiting the NBA schedule
The NBA schedule comes out just before noon, and good news already abounds. Oklahoma City won’t open with the Hornets or the Lakers.
The best possible opener is against a rumdum. The Grizzlies or the Bobcats or somebody. Opening night will be a magical date and doesn’t need the Spurs or the Celtics or the Lakers or the Hornets to get everyone juiced.
This isn’t a ticket-selling problem. All the tickets will be sold all year, I’m convinced. But the NBA season is long, and it’s hard for everyone to stay jazzed all season. Better to have the marquee teams later — LeBron, Philadelphia, Dallas are some others — than earlier. For instance, we’ve got the Timberwolves coming in on Nov. 2 and Atlanta on Nov. 9.
