The NBA season officially started Tuesday, but with only three games, that was simply the appetizer.
Wednesday is the main course.
Fourteen games are on the slate for October 28, meaning all but two teams will be in action. Among the many storylines throughout the day: The debut of Karl-Anthony Towns and a bunch of other top-10 picks. The San Antonio Spurs vs. Oklahoma City Thunder, which could easily be a playoff preview. The return of Kobe Bryant, who hasn’t played a regular-season game since January. And much, much more.
There’s plenty going on in the sports world–a certain Fall Classic comes to mind–but for basketball fans, Wednesday provides the perfect opportunity to take in the NBA for a good six straight hours. Here’s how to watch it all:
