Need to see where Wemby goes but definitely the Knicks will get a game.
Good points. Wemby @ Lakers and the drama of the once and future blah blah blah and - since they did Bucks/C's two Christmases in a row - Celtics @ Knicks sound like a thing they would do.

With the Knicks being good, Celtics-Knicks in either Boston or MSG would be perfect.

Yeah based on the lack of star power in Brooklyn now, I would say game #1 could be the Porzingis bowl (Mavs @ Knicks).

My only other possible adjustment would be Suns @ Sixers #2, Grizz @ Nuggets in the #4 slot, and Warriors @ Lakers in the nightcap.

The league typically focuses on stars during these matchups, and De'Aaron Fox may or may not jump into a higher slot based on this year's playoffs. But maybe if attitudes continue to sour on Ja as a man, the league could play it safe with the Kings. For a different reason, the Clippers are probably on the outside looking in...they have star power but you can't count on PG and Kawhi both being available past opening night.
