How is it that the schedule has been released for over an hour already and there's still no blog topic for it on the main page?

Dang, Lakers @ Celtics on a Thursday night in February.
Celtics @ Lakers on a Saturday night in March.

What a strange schedule considering no Celtics/Warriors or Celtics/Lakers hype.

That Lakers @ Celtics game falls on the trade deadline.  Will be interesting to see what Lakers are even on the roster then.

Could be a crazy trade deadline for the C's as well depending on how Danny feels about the likelihood Kyrie resigns.

Because it doesn't meet the criteria of a click bait headline like Horford coming off the bench?  :P

I count 13, and I think the league average is 13.3, so no real benefit/loss there.

But maybe I just can't count (possible), or maybe he's missing the back-to-back on Nov 30 and Dec 1 since it spans two months, I know I missed it first time.

After 18 months with their Bigs, the Littles were: 46% less likely to use illegal drugs, 27% less likely to use alcohol, 52% less likely to skip school, 37% less likely to skip a class

Wow!

What has it been in years past (dating back to Big 3)? If that's possible, would be interesting to see he dip and rise.
The Nets will finish with the worst record and the Celtics will end up with the 4th pick.

Looking at the schedule, I think the team can go 82-0.




I assume the games with a (T) in parenthesis mean TNT, while the (A) means ABC.  That means only 12 nationally televised games, which seems very low.  But then I notice it doesn't look like anything on ESPN, so that will probably bump it up a little more.

Ugh 27 is a lot. I pay for the league pass so I prefer hey not be on national television because I donít get Mike and Tommy/Scal.

Plus my local games blackout LP which is another 8 games (assuming no games vs Knicks or Nets are nationally televised) and whatever random games NBATV pick up along the way, Iíll be lucky to get them for half the games.

EDIT:

Just looked on NBA website, itís a whopping 39 national games including NBATV.
Apparently the Sixers have the exact same number 27 plus 12 on NBATV.   

Lakers lead with 42 national games including NBATV.  Its going to be horrible having to listen to all the Lebron and Lakers media hype.  Really hope they get off to a bad start.

27 national TV appeareances?? UGH.  :(

More listening to Barkley hate on the Celtics and the ESPN crew slurping on Lebron's Lakers & Embiid's Sixers and not Boston  ::)

And yeah I agree with @tazz, I hope the Lakers get off to a bad start, because boy the drama that would occur would be INSANE!  :laugh:
