Looks like the NBA couldn't keep certain schedule dates under wraps for too long...
Opening Week, Christmas Day and Martin Luther King Day games will be revealed tonight during an NBATV special -- but some dates already have been leaked.
Like, King James and the Miami Heat visiting the Garden for the first time on Dec. 17. ...The Knicks, who opened last season in Miami, open this season in Toronto on Oct. 27 before heading to Boston. On Christmas Day, the Knicks will play the Bulls.
The Knicks' home opener is against Portland and LeBron makes his second trip to the Garden Jan. 27.
The rest of the NBA schedule is due out Aug. 10.
The preliminary schedule dates were first reported by the Daily News.
