The day is here. The time is now. So it is, that we begin the 2013-14 NBA season.

After a summer full of drama and change, the teams, players and fans are ready for the new season to start.

Opening night kicks off with three games on Tuesday, starting with the Orlando Magic visiting the Indiana Pacers at 7:00 pm Eastern, which can be seen on Fox Sports Florida or NBA League Pass.

That game is followed by a double-header on TNT. At 8:00 pm, the Miami Heat open the season with their Championship banner and ring ceremony and a prescription dose of a healthy Derrick Rose and the Chicago Bulls. The night will be capped off with the Los Angeles Lakers hosting the Los Angeles Clippers at 10:30 pm.

Wednesday night 28 of the league’s 30 teams will be in action.

Hopefully you’re ready for a lot of basketball, the players definitely are.
