LeBron James' return to the court in Cleveland looks like it could be against the defending champs.
According to the Boston Globe's Gary Washburn: "Rumor has it that the NBA's season-opening game on TNT will be San Antonio at Cleveland."
The NBA schedule is expected to be released in August.
A LeBron-Spurs match-up would keep with recent Opening Day trends in the NBA with having the defending champions tip-off against marquee competition. The Miami Heat have played the season opener the past two seasons, hosting the Boston Celtics in 2012-13 and the Chicago Bulls last season.
