The 2022-2023 season will begin on October 18 with a clash between the Warriors of Stephen Curry, defending champions, and the Lakers of LeBron James, eager to redeem themselves after a missed last season.
Two months after the end of the NBA season, the outlines of the next exercise are taking shape. It was already recorded that Golden State, having become champion for the seventh time in its history, was going to launch this 2022-2023 exercise as tradition dictates, during an evening marking the presentation of the champion rings to Stephen Curry and his teammates. All that was missing was the identity of their opponent, which is now known. On the other side of the Atlantic, The Athletic reveals that the Warriors will be pitted against the Los Angeles Lakers. A shock scheduled for October 18 at the Chase Center, the lair of the champion. The spotlight will obviously be on Stephen Curry and LeBron James.

The “Christmas Day” also on the program of the Warriors and the Lakers
The first monument, top scorer in NBA history, has guided his team to the title in recent months and was rewarded by receiving the Finals MVP distinction for the first time in his career. He will want to make this already special evening a little more grandiose by making an impression from the start of hostilities. Opposite, LeBron James will have the mission to put his team back on track at the end of a last exercise concluded in eleventh place in the West, which deprived it of play-offs and play-ins. Above all, “King James” will not hesitate to spoil the party in San Francisco if he has the opportunity, on the occasion of the grand premiere of his new coach Darvin Ham, successor to Frank Vogel on the bench. The appointment is made between the two announced giants, on the other hand by ESPN, on the floors for the traditional “Christmas Day”. On December 25, the Warriors will face the Memphis Grizzlies and the Lakers will face Luka Doncic’s Dallas Mavericks
