NBA Schedule Release: Christmas Day, MLK And Key Games

Use your ← → (arrows) to browse

While the 2014-15 NBA season is still a little over two months away, the schedules were released today.

What we knew — every team will play 82 games. We just didn’t know when they would play, which adds intrigue to the release. The biggest of said interest surrounds over the premise over who plays opening week, Christmas Day and on Martin Luther King Jr Day, mostly.

But there is also a ton of hoopla (yes, hoopla) around when LeBron James returns to Miami, plays San Antonio; when Kevin Love returns to Minnesota and when the returns of Kobe Bryant and Derrick Rose commence.

Here are the highlights of the 2014-15 NBA schedule release:
