The Lakers and Warriors will reportedly open the season

Here we go again, y’all. The Lakers are reportedly back on national television. Again. This time to start the NBA season.

You’d think that maybe the NBA would’ve learned from plastering the Lakers on national television every other night last season. Fans complained all year long. But nope. We’re back at it again. Even after they completely missed the playoffs.

It’s been this way for years, obviously. But there are more than enough good basketball teams to go around. You’d think the NBA might choose one of them to headline the league’s opening night.

Instead, we’re getting Lakers vs. Warriors for the 2nd year in a row, according to The Athletic’s Shams Charania.

Sigh. I guess you can understand this decision. LeBron James vs. Steph Curry is always going to be the biggest draw in the league while those two are playing. But, man. After such a disappointing year last year, it’d just be great to put eyes on other teams.

Maybe the NBA knows something we don’t? Maybe the Kyrie Irving trade is happening? Or maybe they just expect the Lakers to be better? Who knows?

But man. Grizzlies vs. Warriors were right there. Or maybe even the Mavericks. Or, you know, just another team that at least made the playoffs last year?

Nope. Lakers. Again. Sigh. Fans weren’t here for this.
