While it seems like the epic 2013 NBA Finals between the San Antonio Spurs & Miami Heat just ended, and LeBron James just hoisted that second NBA championship trophy, the 2013-14 NBA season is just around the corner. The league recently released the 2013 NBA schedule, and rabid fans ready to see more quality basketball like they saw in the 2013 NBA playoffs are already highlighting the must-have 2013 NBA tickets on the calendar. Starting in the East, the Heat will be challenged right away by the Chicago Bulls (maybe, probably led by a healed Derrick Rose) and the 76ers, fresh off a blockbuster draft night trade with the new-look New Orleans Pelicans. We'll also see the overhauled rosters of the Brooklyn Nets and Boston Celtics tested right away; will the loaded but aging Nets be able to make a deep playoff run this season? It all starts with these early games on the 2013 NBA Schedule!
Out West, the Spurs' reign as cream of the highly-contested crop will be challenged right out of the gate by the tough Memphis Grizzlies, who they last saw in the Western Conference Finals. The Oklahoma City Thunder, led by Kevin Durant and a healing Russell Westbrook, will start their campaign to return to the top of the Western Conference with a game against Utah. And the resurgent Houston Rockets, with superstar James Harden and new center Dwight Howard, will begin their 2013 NBA season hosting the lowly Charlotte Bobcats. And finally, both the LA Clippers and the LA Lakers will be out to win over the favor of Los Angeles fans from the jump. Will Kobe Bryant be back from a painful playoffs injury as soon as he's telling everyone? Plenty of big games and big teams will be ready to entertain fans in the first week of the 2013 NBA season, so use SeatGeek's search capabilities and Deal Score to get the best value on NBA ticket prices at the beginning of the season and all year long!
