But not all games are weighted equally. There are tons of high-profile matchups this year, but let's narrow on three of the biggest games of the year.
NBA Games Of The Year
Here are our favorite games of the NBA 2023-24 season.
Oct. 25: Dallas Mavericks @ San Antonio Spurs (Victor Wembanyama's Debut)
I mean, c'mon. Remember the hype around Zion Williamson's NBA debut? The buzz will be even stronger for Wembanyama's first game after being picked first overall. The French phenom could get a rude welcome to the more physical American game, or maybe he'll dazzle and erase any and all doubts about his spot in NBA lore.
The Mavs are a fun team to watch, too. We'll see Luka Doncic strive for an NBA MVP with his knucklehead sidekick Kyrie Irving manning the point.
Dec. 25: Boston Celtics @ Los Angeles Lakers
The NBA Christmas Day games always draw eyes, but why not give viewership a boost by matching up the two most storied franchises in Association history?
The Lakers, assuming they're healthy, are always a fun squad, and the C's will want to keep chugging after losing in the Eastern Conference finals last year.
Feb. 29: Miami Heat @ Denver Nuggets
We'll have to wait until February for a rematch of the 2023 NBA Finals, but it projects to be a spicy one. While there's no telling how healthy either team is by the winter, Miami will be deadset on proving last year wasn't a fluke, and Denver will look to keep the throne.
Will Nikola Jokic, last year's NBA Finals MVP, have his way again? We'll have to wait and see.
