There are seemingly more weekend games, but they’re again most heavily early in the season on football Sundays.

January and March give us out of staters the best shots at seeing games.

10 back to backs? I think that's the lowest I've seen in years.

Not until KD returns. I’d expect Nets at Warriors on Christmas Day next year.

After nearly two decades of being a Net fan... I'm finally going to a HOME game. Got my presale tix for the 10/25 Game vs Knicks.

Really wanted to do the opener, but Wednesday is a bit iffy work wise for me.

Kind of on visitor side, but hopefully there aren't real "visitor" sides at Barclays

Kind of funny though, that the presale is for Amex card holders only.

I couldn't use my Barclays card to go see a game at Barclays...lol

honestly this year with kyrie there is no team we cant beat. we are legit favorites to beat any .500 or worse team and coinflip or better vs. the other top teams

also, we are primed to STOMP people this year with some lopsided wins.

I want to beat the Knicks by double digits. I want their fans to feel pain and despair.

After breaking down the schedule for awhile at after work today, here are my takeaways:

-- as GTR11 noted, the number of back-to-back games is greatly decreased, a responsible move by the league. Moreover,

-- we have ZERO 4-games-in-5-days combinations. That's excellent! Studies show that the 4th games in those stretches cause more injuries, have fewer dunks, yield lower FG%'s and are just a less aesthetically pleasing brand of basketball. I'm not quite enough of a nerd to dive into the other 29 teams' schedules, but I hope the NBA moved away from this scheduling problem for everyone. If so, I think you will see fewer teams rest stars for load management, simply because there will be less risk of injury and need for DNP's.

-- @ Cleveland might be our Kryptonite. IIRC, both times we visit them are the 2nd half of back-to-backs with less than 24hrs rest. The Cavs are gonna suck, but they are the type of team that I believe will give us fits. Versatile perimeter depth, athletic beefy bigs. Getting drubbed twice at their house will be our WTF moment.

-- our season will be defined in two phases: B.K. (before Khrist) and A.D. (anno Durantini). I do put creedence in the right-ACL theory, the videos we've seen of Durant, and the information Cris Carter has shared. I think that barring a setback, KD will be playing 5-on-5 in practice by late January. I see us playing the first 50 games of the season without him, and playing at the level of a 50-win club. That's a really good team, and a record of something like 30-20. When Kevin returns, he'll be rested generously and held out of B2B's to avoid repetitive stress. Still, for the last 32 games, I see him playing in 25 to 27 of them. In those games, even as he's rounding into form, the mere presence of Kevin will allow us grind out games at a 60-win pace. Put us at 23-9 with KD, for a 53-29 season. We'll be peaking at the right moment, and as Garnett once said; ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE!!!

I think Durant should sit the entire season. Unpopular opinion maybe, but I think giving him the most time feasibly possible will be the best course of action.

I see KD returning to practice in late January as a conservative timeline. 32 games would be 3 games the All-Star break. If we pared it down to 29 games, that would mean he doesn't play until after the break.

I feel you, we would be foolish to rush him back. He's too valuable for the long-term. However, 6.5 months is the full recovery time prescribed by physicians, which would be December 27th. You literally can't gain anything structurally by giving KD additional rest. At that point, it's a matter of getting him re-acclimated to training, getting in the groove, and adjusting to a new team. A month of slowly ramping up from 1-on-none to 5-on-5 is being extremely cautious.

Unless he feels uncomfortable mentally or psychologically, WHICH IS ENTIRELY VALID, POSSIBLE AND A REASON THAT I SUPPORT, let him return when he's healthy. He is no more likely to re-injure or have setback on February 1, 2020 as he would be on November 1, 2020.

Knicks are light work. Not really concerned with them. I want teams like Philly and Indiana.
