The Boston Celtics reportedly will take center stage for NBA Opening Night.

According to The Athletic's Shams Charania, the C's will host the Philadelphia 76ers to open the 2022-23 season on Oct. 18. Out west, the reigning NBA champion Golden State Warriors will host the Los Angeles Lakers.

The Celtics split the 2021-22 season series with the Sixers, 2-2. Making an Opening Night showdown between the Eastern Conference rivals even more intriguing is Brooklyn Nets superstar Kevin Durant reportedly having both teams atop his list of preferred trade destinations.
