Game Thread: Season Opener, Bobcats at Mavericks

Who: The Dallas Mavericks host the Charlotte Bobcats

What: FINALLY the first real game of the season!

Where: American Airlines Center, Dallas, TX

When: 7:30pm CT/ 8:30pm ET

How: If you can bear to look away from the Rangers' first-ever World Series berth, you'll find the Mavericks game on SSO-CHA, FSSW-DAL and League Pass. At least stop by the thread... I'll be there in all my regular-season glory.

The Story:

Mav-Killer Stephen Jackson will probably play, despite tweaking his ankle in practice. The Mavericks will attempt to win a season-opener, which they have had trouble doing the past several years. Luckily, the Bobcats have never beaten the Mavericks (not even once) in the 12 times they've met. Click on below the jump for some game-related links, and as always, GO MAVS!!!
