How to win the NBA title on the court and on the microphone in 2024
With LeBron James set to retire, the NBA is set to embark on an unprecedented journey to determine who will be the NBA’s next superstar.
The stakes are high: The 2020 Finals, and the 2024 Olympics, are expected to be held in the coming years.
But in order to have any chance of defeating the defending champions of the NBA, the league will have to win three of the five games on the road and six of the eight home games.
The games themselves are key: the most important are the home-and-home series with the Chicago Bulls, the Los Angeles Lakers and the Miami Heat.
The rest of the schedule is mostly neutral, so the stakes are lower, too.
The top teams are guaranteed to make the finals: Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers.
The second-place team will play the first-place Boston Celtics in the first game.
The three games are a must-win: the second-ranked Chicago Bulls and the No. 2 Boston Celtics play at the Barclays Center on Sunday in Brooklyn.
The Celtics also play the No, 1 Brooklyn Nets in a game on Tuesday night.
The Warriors, however, will be playing the Brooklyn Nets on Monday night in Brooklyn, while the Cavaliers will play at home against the Atlanta Hawks on Tuesday.
There are two home-court advantages: the first is the home court advantage: the NBA will be able to field more teams on each team’s home court, which means the home team will have more chances to win.
The home team also gets to host the first two games of the series.
The second advantage is the ability to host at least two games on two different days, so it is possible for the home side to host both games on a day that is close to the opening night of the regular season.
The Bulls and Lakers also have the ability, and it is expected they will host both the Bulls-Lakers game on March 7 and the Celtics-Dolphins game on Sunday.
If the teams have a tie game on the day of the opening game, the home teams will play on the opposite day of that tie.
If the teams do not have a game that is within the first five minutes of the game, then the teams will each play one game on Thursday night in Boston.

The first two dates are the first in which they can play a second-round game in the NBA.
The third date is the first week in which the teams can play an exhibition game, a pre-season game or a regular season game.
The teams will only be allowed two exhibition games per season, two pre-seasons and two regular seasons.
The Bulls, Lakers and Celtics will play each other once, the Cavs will play once and the Clippers will play twice.
