Today is the day we all have been waiting for! Tonight at 7:00 pm marks the beginning of the 2013-14 NBA season, opening with what is being called ” the most anticipated game of the season” the reigning champions the Miami Heat versus the hungry revengeful Chicago Bulls. Captain of the Miami Heat and 4 Time MVP LeBron James makes it clear that this rivalry is real, “We don’t like them and they don’t like us. It’s not like it’s unheard of. We all know what it is. They don’t like us, so we don’t like them.” Seeing that the flamed rivalry between these two teams, this game has been the most debated topic since this seasons schedule was revealed. Although it is the first of 82 games in the regular season, Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau suggested Monday that the opener is not exactly just a measuring-stick game for Chicago against the two-time defending champions.
Ending their pre- season undefeated, with (PG) Derrick Rose and (C) Joakim Noah both 100% healthy, the Chicago Bulls are ready for this great match- up . Also with the returning (F) Michael Beasley and (C) Greg Oden, the Miami Heat are ready to show their fans what champions are made of. All of the Miami Heat fans are looking forward to their first win of the season at their own home while the Chicago Bulls fans are feeling the same but only looking to take the first win over the champions. Another moment fans are looking forward to is the ring ceremony, which will take place before tip off, where the Champions will receive their 2012-13 championship rings. So get ready to see who will take the first w of the season at the American Airline Arena, the home of the Heat.
