The NBA’s best and worst schedule release videos for 2022-2023 season

The 2022-2023 NBA schedule is finally out and you can find every game on the league’s official website. It just arrived: your favorite team is playing 82 games this year! Four of those games will be played against division opponents, while two of those games will be against teams in the opposite conference. Okay, so that’s the case every year, but schedule day is still something to celebrate for NBA fans hungry for content during the dog days of August (I’d suggest watching the WNBA playoffs instead).

The other advantage of schedule day is how it tests the creativity of the social media teams in the league. Every year team accounts release videos to announce the new schedules and there seems to be an unspoken competition between them to create the most engaging one. This year hasn’t disappointed us: these are some of the best social media release videos yet.

Here are our favorite and disliked videos announcing team plans for the 2022-2023 season.

Memphis Grizzlies

I admit I didn’t know what Memphis Pool Slicing was until I saw this video. Urban Dictionary defines it as “jumping into a pool in an intense and exaggerated manner.” I recommend falling down a YouTube rabbit hole here. This is creative and has a great local touch. Well done Memphis.

Pelicans from New Orleans

As rumors circulated that Zion Williamson was not happy in New Orleans this time last year, there was a report that Pelicans President David Griffin was playing the piano for Williamson in his hotel room. Williamson shot that down, of course, but the Pelicans hilariously decided to go for it for their planned release video. It appears to be Griffin Play Getcha Sum by New Orleans artist HaSizzle. I can’t believe they actually dreamed this up and pulled this off. This is elite work.

Hating spam calls is one of the few things that all people in America can agree on. I have to admit that when I was asked about a car’s extended warranty, the sound of the recording tripped me up.

New York Knicks

The ’90s theme has never been hotter, and the Knicks took full advantage of it here. Unfortunately, the promise of a new Knicks season still wasn’t enough to get Obi Toppin out of bed. Maybe that’s what happens when he’s traded for Donovan Mitchell.

Atlanta Hawks

people on social media really didn’t like this one judging by the quote tweets. To each his own.

Chicago Bulls

The Bulls released this five minutes before the schedule was due to be released. To be honest: great gag. Unfortunately the schedule itself wasn’t so nice to Chicago.

Portland Trail Blazer

Attention young people: This is what computers used to look like. You had to get a second phone line just to use the internet!

Washington Wizard

The commentators have been rude in this regard, to. I think I’m too old to understand what’s going on here.
