Every NBA team announced their 2021-22 regular season schedule Friday, and plenty of teams found a creative way to do it.ย 

The Wizards were no exception, as new first-round rookie Corey Kispert helped Washington announce their schedule by using the "Chef's Kiss" app to scroll through popular foods of cities like Boston (Celtics), Brooklyn (Nets), New York (Knicks) and Philadelphia (76ers).ย 

A few more teams found fun ways to announce their schedule, as the Hawks had actor and comedian Desi Banks and Maryland alumni Kevin Huerter put on a sketch over facetime.ย 

The Kings got in on the fun as well, asking several kids to guess the names of different teams on their schedule and going with what they said either way. One kid thought the Celtics were the "Leopards,"ย so that's what they went with.ย 

Then the Timberwolves broke out the highlight reel to announce specific games in their schedule, most notably showing Anthony Edwards dunking all over Yuta Watanabe to showcase their Raptors matchups this season.ย 

The Wizards are slated to have two nationally televised games as well as a contestย on New Year's Day against the Bulls and a matchup with the Sixers on Martin Luther King Day.ย Washington will open their 2020-21 season on October 20 with a game on the road against the Raptors.ย
