The next night we get the new-look Pelicans taking on the new-look Rockets, followed by the favorite to win Rookie of the Year, Luka Doncic, going up against No. 1 overall pick Deandre Ayton in the first game for each player.
Just 24 hours later we get LeBron James' debut with the Lakers in what should be a raucous atmosphere in Portland. Then on Friday we have another potential Eastern Conference finals preview in Celtics vs. Raptors, followed by a heavyweight Western Conference battle between the Warriors and Jazz.
And that's not all, as the weekend give us not only an interesting matchup between the Raptors and Wizards -- a rematch of their first-round playoff series last season -- but also the Rockets traveling to Los Angeles for LeBron's home debut with the Lakers.
