After weeks and weeks of waiting the day has finally arrived— the Lakers and the NBA are ready for another great season.  Today marks the opening night of the NBA season, with three great games being played.  First off, the Celtics will host the Heat followed by a less than exciting match up between the Suns and Blazers.  Perhaps the most anticipated game will be the Lakers facing off with the Rockets.  The Lakers will receive their championship rings, raise the 16th championship banner, and embark on another title run.
