My blood is already boiling. The excitement is already there. It’s still two and a half months away, but damn it! I can’t wait. The Celtics are opening the 2010-2011 season in Boston on Oct. 26th, against none other than the Miami Heat. (Boston Globe)
Miami’s new Big Three will be making their regular-season debut against the Celtics’ Big Three at TD Garden.
According to a league sources, the revamped Heat, featuring the daunting trio of LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh, will open the NBA season against the Celtics Oct. 26, a clash that will be nationally televised by TNT.
The league will release its opening week and Christmas Day schedules tonight on NBA TV, and it’s expected that the Heat and Celtics will be prevalent in those games.
Are you kidding me? If you’re supposed to call a doctor if an erection persists for more than four hours, what are you supposed to do if it lasts two and a half months?
This matchup was made for opening night. All the Celtics have been doing this offseason is talking shit about the Heat. On top of that, they knocked both Wade and Lebron out of the playoffs (and probably would have knocked Bosh out too — you know, if he’d made the playoffs). There will be a whole lot of bad blood and both teams will have a lot to prove. The Celtics will be out to show they’re still the class of the East, while the Heat will be trying to demonstrate that they’re more than paper champs.
P.S. – Anybody want to offer a dude some tickets?
