The NBA has released the full 82-game schedule for every club, even the Charlotte Bobcats. Unlike last season's 66-game sprint that featured back-to-back-backs, and double headers, this schedule will return to the normal pace. (Personally, I really liked the 66 game deal).
For Dallas Mavericks fans, circle these games:
10/30 at Lakers. Season opener where Steve Nash will laugh in the Mavs face as he rides Kobe Bryant's back off the court.
11/3 Charlotte. Home opener. Not sure if this counts in the standings, but this should be the ideal chance for Chris Kaman to go for 40 and 10 and OJ Mayo to score 50 points.
11/9 at NY Knicks. Tyson Chandler now Jason Kidd. That's a nice kick to the groin.
12/8 at Houston. The Jeremy Lin Show; the question is whether Lin will be starting the game on the bench by this point.
12/12 at Boston. Jason Terry will want this game so bad it may cause his head to explode.
12/20 Miami. The greatest team in any sport ever will come to town.
1/14 Minnesota. With Kevin Love and Ricky Rubio, the Wolves could be one of the sleepers in the West.
1/18 OKC. The Thunder should return to spanking the Mavs.
2/9 Golden State. My God; are the Warriors still in the league?
2/20 Orlando. Dwight Howard Bobblehead night at the American Airlines Center.
2/26 Milwaukee. It's the rare buy 1 get 3,000 free tickets promotion.
3/20 Brooklyn. Yeeeeah ... Deron Williams may want to sit this one out.
3/26 LA Clippers. Yeeeah ... Lamar Odom may want to sit this one out.
3/28 Indiana. Imagine the reception Ian Mahinmi will receive playing against his old team. Get chills just thinking about the indifference.
3/30 Chicago. If Derrick Rose is actually upright for this game and not hurt as a result of his endless attacks at the rim, a good ticket.
