Despite the fact that the 2011-2012 NBA season is likely to be missed the NBA will still release its schedule tomorrow at 2 pm eastern time. Howard Beck of the New York Times says that the Knicks will open versus Miami on Nov. 2 and will play Boston on Christmas Day.
“If the lockout is resolved in time, the 2011-12 season will open with the Chicago Bulls playing in Dallas, against the defending-champion Mavericks, according to ESPN.com.
The Knicks — who will be playing in a newly renovated Madison Square Garden — are scheduled to open play Nov. 2, against the Miami Heat, according to a person who has seen the schedule. The Knicks are also scheduled to play a marquee game on Christmas, against the Boston Celtics.”
Lets just hope there is a 2011-2012 season so we can actually see Amare, Melo and the gang play out a full NBA schedule. I would settle for like a 50 game schedule because at least we would have games but I am praying that we can get a full schedule in. I think the NBA has a lot of momentum right now. Last season was the best season I think the NBA has had in my lifetime, or since I have been watching the NBA closely (since about 2004). It would be sad to see the momentum to the league killed and again I am praying for a full season next year.
