It’s been a minute since the Denver Nuggets brought home their first NBA Championship title over the Miami Heat, but finally, it’s time for the 2023-24 NBA season to tip off. This season already appears to belong, in part, to headline-grabbing rookies like Victor Wembanyama, Chet Holmgren and Scoot Henderson. Tonight, the 2023-24 NBA season continues opening week with two games: the Boston Celtics vs. New York Knicks, and the Dallas Mavericks vs. San Antonio Spurs, where Wemby will finally make his regular season debut.
