The new beast of the East will be front and center on ESPN to start the NBA's 2004-05 regular season.

Shaquille O'Neal, who was traded to Miami by the Los Angeles Lakers this offseason, will play his first game with the Heat on ESPN -- Nov. 3 at New Jersey.

The defending champion Detroit Pistons tip off the league's 59th season on Nov. 2 when they play the Houston Rockets at the Palace of Auburn Hills. The date will be highlighted by Detroit's ring ceremony as well as Tracy McGrady's regular-season debut with Houston.

ESPN's Nov. 3 doubleheader concludes with the Lakers taking on the Utah Jazz at the Delta Center (10:30 p.m. ET).

ABC Sports will broadcast the NBA Finals, which start on June 9, for the third straight season. This season, ESPN will be the exclusive network for the West finals, with the East finals airing on TNT.

The best of the batch this season, as senior NBA writer Marc Stein sees it:
