It’s Christmas in August!
Or at the very least, we all know what we’ll be doing on Christmas…while we’re still in August.
The 2014-2015 NBA schedule was released for all 30 teams Wednesday afternoon, including the 82-game slate for every franchise. Topping the list are the all-important opening night, home opener and of course prestigious Christmas Day roster of games that has been known to cause quite a few angry barbs thrown my way at the MAMBINO house.
Looking at LA’s season, a few distinct points fly out at me:
- For all of our negativity and pessimistic outlooks on the team’s chances next season, the Lakers still have 28 nationally televised games on ABC, ESPN, NBA TV and TNT. That’s just 1 less than last year’s 29, which, as we all know was slightly less as the Lake Show was taken off ESPN and NBA TV several times on their way to the lottery.
