The 2018-19 NBA season kicks off tonight with a star-studded TNT double-header, starting with a fully healthy Boston Celtics team playing host to the Philadelphia 76ers at 8pm ET, followed by Paul George and the Oklahoma City Thunder taking on the defending champion Golden State Warriors at Oracle Arena. 

Ahead of tonight's season-opener, 2 Chainz and ESPN's NBA Countdown dropped of a new hype video recapping some of the most notable stories of the off-season including LeBron's move to Los Angeles, DeMarcus Cousins uniting with the defending champs and, of course, Kawhi Leonard's outrageous laugh.

ESPN will broadcast several games during the NBA opening week, including a double-header tomorrow night as the Houston Rockets host the New Orleans Pelicans and a rookie showcase pitting Luka Doncic's Dallas Mavericks against DeAndre Ayton and the Phoenix Suns. ESPN will also have a Friday night double-header featuring Celtics at Raptors and Warriors at Jazz.
