The full schedule for the 2012-13 NBA season will be released on Thursday night during a one-hour special at 6 p.m. CT on NBATV. SB Nation Chicago will have the Chicago Bulls completely covered, while SBNation.com will have full coverage for the rest of the league, so be sure to check back on both sites for updates and full schedule details. One marquee matchup for opening night has already been leaked to the media, so everyone now knows that the Brooklyn Nets will open their new arena against the New York Knicks in what should be an amazing spectacle on TNT.
While you wait for the Bulls' slate of games to emerge, take some time to check out Tom Ziller's proposed 15-game schedule for Christmas Eve and Christmas:
Ziller's Proposed Matchup On Christmas Day: Bulls at Celtics
If Derrick Rose isn't back by Christmas, I demand we get the Coachella folks to hand over Hologram Derrick Rose. (Note: Hologram Derrick Rose would definitely be the second best guard on the Bulls, and would probably shoot better than Rondo.)
