The full 2012-2013 NBA schedule has not been released yet, but Ira Winderman of the South-Florida Sun Sentinel reports that the Boston Celtics will open the season in Miami:
While the complete NBA schedule will not be released until later, the Sun Sentinel has learned that the Miami Heat will open the 2012-13 NBA regular season on Tuesday Oct. 30 atAmericanAirlines Arena against the Celtics.
Not only will the Celtics face their old friend and new foe, Ray Allen, they will have to endure the pain of watching the Heat’s pre-game championship ring ceremony. I’m sure both circumstances will provide plenty of motivational fodder for the hyper competitive crew in Boston. I can just imagine KG head-butting the stanchion and mumbling expletives as LeBron James tries on his championship ring for the first time.
T-100 days. The countdown begins.
