With the release of its official 2022-23 schedule, the NBA has made one thing very clear: it loves the Golden State Warriors.
You can’t really blame them because the reigning champions are a lot of fun to watch and bring in huge audiences.
Stephen Curry and his teammates have earned the right to be the faces of the current league.
That’s the way it’ll continue be in the new season.

The Warriors will have 42 nationally televised games in the 2022-23 season.
That is the most for any team in the association and it shows that Golden State is the biggest team in the league and will be until another squad comes along and steals the crown away.
It’s not a big surprise to see the Warriors with the most nationally televised games.
Some other teams that will get a lot of air time at the level are the Los Angeles Lakers with 39, the Boston Celtics with 37, and the Phoenix Suns and Philadelphia 76ers with 34.
Some people are shocked to see the Lakers with so many nationally televised games but you have to remember that the Lakers will always get a lot of attention, even when they are horrible.
The fact that they have one of the biggest athletes of all time on their team ensures that they will always be on the primetime schedule.
It’s interesting to see a team like the Dallas Mavericks secure 30 nationally televised games.
This proves that the team is on the rise and will be getting even more attention this year, hot on the heels of their very impressive postseason run.
The Warriors might be at the top of the heap but other teams are ready to rival their supremacy.
