Okay, everybody, it’s time for the 2023-24 NBA season to really begin (yes, it technically started last night, but it doesn’t really begin until the Knicks play a game).
The Knicks host the Celtics in a game that could be a major statement for the Knicks this season to show that they’re ready to hang with the big dogs. During the preseason, perhaps because of their first game being against each other, both teams sat their stars for one of their two meetings, so there was no real sense of what they would look like against each other.
It’ll be a fascinating matchup either way, though, and our first chance to see what the Knicks rotation will look like in a real game, and also to see what the new look Celtics will look like.
Hopefully the Knicks kick their ass, especially since I predicted 53 wins, and thus I need them to win a lot of games.
Let’s go, Knicks!
For opening night, I have a poll for you all…
