5 Must Watch Games of 2016-17 NBA Season


5. Bulls at Heat – November 10th on TNT

For the longest time it seemed that Dwyane Wade would be a member of the Miami Heat forever but now he is a Chicago Bull. It will be an amazing moment to see Wade playing in American Airlines Arena again and the respect from Miami fans will be something Wade will love to experience once again.

4. Knicks at Bulls – November 4th on ESPN

After the New York Knicks and Chicago Bulls blockbuster trade and big offseason signings both teams are much different. The Chicago Bulls’ star player is now officially Jimmy Butler and his surrounding cast is interesting. Butler will now be playing with Rajon Rondo and one of the greatest shooting guards of all-time, Dwyane Wade. But the main reason this game will be so entertaining is because of the former MVP Derrick Rose. Rose is with a new team and he claimed them to be a super team, and in early November he will try to prove that against his old team and hometown.

3. Spurs at Warriors – October 25th on TNT

If any team not named the Cleveland Cavaliers have a chance to beat the Golden State Warriors, it’s the San Antonio Spurs. The Warriors added Kevin Durant, but lost several role players while the San Antonio Spurs signed veteran big-man Pau Gasol; but they lost the greatest power forward in NBA history, Tim Duncan to retirement. With both teams having a new identity this will be a fantastic way to see how both teams will do throughout the season.

2. Warriors at Cavaliers – Christmas Day on ABC

With their recent history in the Finals and Christmas games this is becoming one of the greatest rivalries in the NBA. The Cavaliers are the defending Champions as they beat the Warriors in 7 games last season, but the Warriors are a new monster due to Kevin Durant’s signing, so LeBron James and the Cavaliers need to prove they are beatable in big games.

1. Thunder at Warriors – November 3rd on TNT

The matchups in this game will be compelling, especially Russell Westbrook versus Stephen Curry, but the big story is Kevin Durant facing the Oklahoma City Thunder who he abandoned after last year’s Western Conference Finals. With Russell Westbrook outraged and determined to have a good season, we should definitely see a tough and competitive game.
