The 2019-2020 Lakers schedule has been released:

https://www.nba.com/lakers/schedule

Sounds like it will be an easier schedule before things ramp up, unlike last season.

Quote:
Last season, the Lakers opened with eight of their first 11 games against playoff teams, not to mention five of their final six. That equation has flipped this season, as L.A. will see only four 2018-19 postseason teams in their first 11 games, while the final 10 games include only three playoff teams.

2018-19 Playoff Opponents By Month:

October: 2 of 4 (.50)

November: 6 of 15 (.40)

December: 9 of 14 (.64)

January: 9 of 15 (.60)

February: 6 of 11 (.55)

March: 10 of 15 (.67)

April: 3 of 8 (.38)

Which games are you guys looking forward to the most? Here's what one analyst is saying will be the "big" games:

Quote:
BOX OFFICE BLOCKBUSTERS

Oct. 22 @LAC: The debut of LeBron James + Anthony Davis in games that count is enough of a tune-in factor, but the opponent across the hall increases the intrigue. Even with Paul George’s potential absence (offseason shoulder surgery), Kawhi Leonard will be there with his new teammates.

Nov. 13 vs. GSW: Steph Curry, Draymond Green and former Laker D’Angelo Russell come to town, so, buzz remains even without Klay Thompson (ACL surgery) and Kevin Durant (Achilles rupture, free agent exit).

Nov. 27 @NOP: The return of AD to New Orleans would be enough, but we also check in on Lakers draft picks Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram and Josh Hart.

Feb. 23 vs. BOS: Lakers-Celtics sells itself no matter how good the teams are, but both have a good chance to be in the top four of their respective conferences by February. Boston lost Kyrie Irving and Al Horford but added Kemba Walker and a number of draft picks, and will expect development from their young wing duo of Jason Tatum and Jaylen Brown.

March 12 vs. HOU: Russell Westbrook and James Harden hope to have the Rockets in strong contention as the race for West seedings tightens. This game is also the first of arguably LAL’s toughest 3-game stretch, leading into a B2B vs. DEN/@UTA.

The NOP game is the one I am interested in. Still a big Brandon Ingram fan and want to see him do well, no matter where he is at.

Everyone tells me to not rush life, but I wish I could fast forward to October. I haven't been this excited about watching a season in a very long time. I requested game one off of work just in case they decided to have my traveling on that day.

Got one. We're good. And thankfully unlike recent years have a softer schedule to start the season. Finally.
