The new NBA Finals finished over two months ago now with fans anxious to see the return of competitive basketball.
This offseason has seen some major changes in the league, most notably LeBron James ending his 15-year stay in the Eastern Conference by joining the Los Angeles Lakers.
Reigning champions Golden State Warriors somehow got stronger by adding DeMarcus Cousins while the San Antonio Spurs were forced to trade away Kawhi Leonard with the Toronto Raptors taking a gamble on his impending 2019 free agency by letting DeMar DeRozan go.
The Warriors are once again the heavy favourites to win a third NBA title in four years but that doesn’t take away the excitement the return of the NBA will provide.
While the season doesn’t get underway until mid-October, teams will start playing pre-season games at the end of September.
There will be at least one game every night from September 28 until October 12th with the NBA season getting underway the following week.
