Dallas Mavericks to open the 2012-2013 NBA Season.

Via ESPN, the Miami Heat vs. the Boston Celtics will open the NBA season. This will be a double header on TNT that will also feature our Dallas Mavericks vs. the Los Angeles Lakers.

Excited? If yes, carry on.

Not excited? Hop over the jump and see why you should be.

This double header opening should be very exciting to any basketball fan, and even more to us, Maverick fans.

First of all, everyone gets to enjoy watching Ray Allen and the defending Champion Miami Heat square off against Allen's old team and rival to the Heat, the Boston Celtics. Fun stuff.

For us, Maverick fans, it means we get to see our team get some attention. We are playing on opening night, which means at least we are still a decently sized market team. We still get media attention. Despite the first round sweep, we are not forgetten.

Also, we get to see our old field general Steve Nash guide the Lakers. That should be a very interesting team to watch, whether or not you like them or not.

Finally, we get to see what we can do. So many new additions. Who will start? Who will play a surprisingly large or small role? And not only do we get to enjoy it, but we get a chance to play in a stage where the whole basketball world is watching. This is our chance to make a statement.

Maybe I an a little over hyped, but I am ridiculously excited for this game, and, well, this season.

Now, as always,
GO MAVS!!!
