The NBA announced the preseason schedule for all teams, and the first game starts off with a bang.

The Los Angeles Lakers will host the Brooklyn Nets on Oct. 3 at 12:30 p.m. in what is automatically a highly anticipated matchup.

Both teams stacked their respective rosters with former All-Stars who can still contribute on any given night.

The Lakers, who have LeBron James and Anthony Davis, added Russell Westbrook, Carmelo Anthony, Dwight Howard, Rajon Rondo and more to the fold, including youngsters Kendrick Nunn and Malik Monk.

Brooklyn, who have Kevin Durant, James Harden and Kyrie Irving, brought in Patty Mills, LaMarcus Aldridge, Paul Millsap and re-signed Blake Griffin.

Los Angeles also signed former Brooklyn Net DeAndre Jordan after the Nets wanted to move on, so that factor is involved as well.

The preseason kicks off in less than a month.
