Opener on the 19th
Grateful Hockey is starting, but seriously?! A DAY GAME?!

For national tv. Otherwise they could have switched with the Clippers.AEG owns the building.

Agreed - they could play a high school team - as long as that banner goes up and they get their rings it will be something I've been waiting for since I was 7 years old. Its been a long 25 years. :-)

There will be boys at the party and the old man won't be there to give them dirty looks. Yeah, she'll be real upset.

I confess I don't pay attention to a bad team like the Wizards schedule.

By pointing that out I was trying to prove that AEG just can't change schedules on a whim. That has to go through the league, and there's no way the NBA would have ever approved that. I don't know this for a fact but I would assume their CBA forbids two games with in such a short period of time.
On this short a notice, noon on the 19th looks like it was the only option.

I saw over at HF that Calgary and Edmonton are opening against each other.

That's my conspiracy theory at least.
