IEC students can go to the NBA opening season game! The Warriors will meet the Houston Rockets head-on at Oracle Arena, Oakland, on Oct 21. It only costs $20, a pretty reasonable price compared with the regular ticket price.
Yao Ming, the famous Chinese player, was injured and absent almost all last season, so it will be the first game for his return. This summer the Rockets got a lot of reinforcements like Courtney Lee and Brad Miller to increase competitiveness. Last season the Rockets still advanced to the playoffs, but did not do a good job. Could Yao’s return lead the Rocket to win this game?
The Warriors just fired coach Don Nelson and changed to Keith Smart. They also had some young and talented players join, including the Taiwanese player, Jeremy Lin. They might have a lot of other changes under Smart’s coaching. Could the new coach get a victory in his first game?
So, if you are interested in this game, you can sign up at the front desk right now. You will get a free T-shirt and may have a chance to make the free-throw on the court after the game.
