The 2018-19 NBA schedule was released in full on Friday. Teams took the opportunity presented by the big reveal to showcase their 82 games and made it a special viewing experience.
Some were more impressive than others. So in no particular order, let’s take a look at some strong executions of the new schedule:

– Atlanta Hawks (@ATLHawks) August 10, 2018
The Hawks went next level, putting out an entire Spotify playlist for their schedule:
That’s just fantastic. You have Meek Mill serving as the Philadelphia matchup, “King Kunta” for a visit from the Kings, and Michael Jackson for the finale against Indiana. Appreciate the Hawks, the team that was thoughtful enough to gift an unworn jersey this week.
The 2018-19 schedule is here!

The Nuggets put SuperMascot Rocky to work, having him power up like Pac-Man to get through Denver’s schedule.

A montage through The 6 is how the Raptors introduced key dates on their schedule for next season. Keep an eye out on the train and the bus for the reunion dates.

– Brooklyn Nets (@BrooklynNets) August 10, 2018
The Nets were kind enough to assist the Blazers with their offseason movement project. A quick view of Brooklyn is also a fine way of displaying the home schedule at Barclays Center:

– Chicago Bulls (@chicagobulls) August 10, 2018
The Bulls wanted to show the “L” as a theme of their NBA schedule. The only thing missing in the Bulls’ tribute to the Chicago Transit Authority was a cameo from Peter Cetera or Robert Lamm:
We kinda like Insta stories ¯_(ツ)_/¯ https://t.co/qpu5DFsBgA pic.twitter.com/hypF2Q3Cl5
– Utah Jazz (@utahjazz) August 10, 2018
You won’t find Utah’s schedule on its Instagram stories. But the Jazz will bring the #Nightlife!
Rather be good than lucky. #PistonsSchedule pic.twitter.com/5AvJUulvQH
– Detroit Pistons (@DetroitPistons) August 10, 2018
Hooper, Detroit’s mascot, is probably going to spend the rest of the month showing his disgruntled attitude toward any mention of the rest of the league.

– Indiana Pacers (@Pacers) August 10, 2018
The Pacers continued with the retro video game theme, with some help from the Power Pack and mascot Boomer.

– Phoenix Suns (@Suns) August 10, 2018
The Suns anticipated what NBA Twitter would react to for their season release, with a nod to Adrian Wojnarowski’s draft day adjectives mixed in.

– Washington Wizards (@WashWizards) August 10, 2018
The appreciation of NBA Jam started at the turn of this year, and it continues with Washington chiming in on every team’s top two players for the season ahead. Never too early to put out a scouting report!
At the end of the day, every team is playing the same number of games.
SCHEDULE SPOILER ALERT:
We’re playing 82 games, just like every other team.
