Cavaliers vs Knicks

Cavaliers vs KnicksThe 2014-15 NBA schedule hasn’t been officially released yet, but reports have slowly been leaking out with information about some of the league’s marquee matchups. After initial reports that the Cavaliers were going to have to open the season in San Antonio to face the Spurs, Yahoo’s Marc Spears is now reporting that the Cavaliers will actually host the Carmelo Anthony and the Phil Jackson-led Knicks on opening night.

We also have word that the Cavaliers will be playing on Christmas Day for the first time in five years when they travel to Miami where LeBron will square off with former teammates Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh.

The full schedule is expected to be released Wednesday at 6:00 pm.

    So….Lebron moves back to CLE so that he can be closer to family, and the NBA schedules a game on Christmas in MIA his first season back…makes sense.

    I prefer to enjoy the first half of the NFL and not go into “where will we end up in the draft” mode

    Can’t you multi-task? Baseball is in playoff mode, football well underway, basketball tips off and hockey too…best time of the year! Oh and college football too.

    ESPN doesn’t want to spend Christmas in Cleveland to cover LBJ.
    The NBA knows who’s the boss. 😉
