3 intriguing back-to-back sets for 2018-19 season

Basketball fans got the chance to start making plans for the 2018-19 season on Friday afternoon, as the NBA released each team's complete schedule for the year.

- The Warriors open the season against the Thunder on October 16 in Oracle Arena, where there is a 99.8 percent chance that Russell Westbrook keeps his Thunder teammates in the locker room, stewing, while the Warriors receive their 2017-18 National Basketball Association championship rings pregame.

Dolphins cut DT for blindsiding Drake during altercation in practice
Wright appeared in one game for the Dolphins last season, recording one solo tackle in a December game against the Buffalo Bills. Wright was fighting to make the Dolphins' 52-man roster after spending the majority of the 2017 campaign on the practice squad.

The Thunder will play on ABC or ESPN a total of 16 times, including three appearances on the NBA Saturday Primetime on ABC and two appearances on the NBA Sunday Showcase on ABC. I wrote previously about a couple of their games on marquee National Basketball Association dates and his return to face the Cleveland Cavaliers in OH on November 21, but there are plenty of matchups that catch the eye for the Lakers; we know heading into the season they will play every team at least twice.

- This will be the fourth straight season the Warriors will face LeBron. They just released the entire schedule for the new season, where notes on that can be found here, and the opening of training camps are roughly six weeks away. I'll begin my top three with a late season home game against an Eastern Conference team before heading to LeBron's least favorite place to play in the National Basketball Association.
