NBA Season 2023-24 Opener: Luka's Mavericks Against Wemby's Spurs

Victor Wembanyama will make his NBA debut by competing against Luka Doncic, as there are tentative plans for the San Antonio Spurs to play against the Dallas Mavericks to kick off the NBA season 2023-24.

Prior to the basketball festivities on Saturday, which include a FIBA World Cup preparation game between Team USA and Slovenia, as well as the induction of Dirk Nowitzki and other legends into the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame, NBA reporter Marc Stein released an intriguing report on Thursday evening regarding the opening week of the 2023-24 season schedule.

“Victor Wembanyama’s first official NBA game is tentatively slated for Oct. 25, league sources say, with Wembanyama’s Spurs due to play host to Dallas and Luka Doncic,” Stein tweeted. “The NBA’s full formal 2023-24 schedule release is expected next week.”

Indeed, the Dallas Mavericks and the San Antonio Spurs are embarking on an exciting new chapter in their longstanding in-state rivalry, as the highly-touted top overall pick Victor Wembanyama will make his debut against four-time All-NBA First Team member Luka Doncic in the NBA season 2023-24 opening game.

Considering that the Mavs outperformed the Spurs in last season’s standings and Doncic, along with Kyrie Irving, possesses more experience compared to most Spurs players, it’s debatable why the league would choose to have Dallas start on the road. Nevertheless, this matchup promises to be a must-watch event not only for fans of the Mavericks and the Spurs but also for basketball enthusiasts in general.

The Mavericks have a 12-3 record against the Spurs in the 15 games they’ve contested since the 2019-20 season. Dallas had secured seven consecutive victories against San Antonio before losing the final game of last season, with Doncic, Irving, and other key players sidelined to improve their draft position
