    The NBA needs to redo the X-Mas Games this year

    At first they looked good, but now they will be atrocious. Brooklyn and Chicago needs to be canceled and replaced by something like Indiana and Portland. Miami and LA needs to be replaced by Miami and OKC. Houston and SA is ok. Those are really the only games you need to see. Back in the day there were only 2 games on Xmas anyway. No need for 5 games when only one of them will be highly competitive among good teams.

    Thanks MJ-Bulls for the picture.

    Way too late for that.. Guess all we can hope for is they turn out to be entertaining. I could see them all being entertaining except Miami/LA. Even when Lakers were healthy and they played it seemed to always be a blowout in Miami's favor.

    I will for sure watch Clips-Warriors, Rockets-Spurs, Melo-Durant, Heat-Kobeless Lakers... but no go on the Bulls-Nets. That game is gonna be boring.

    I'm actually looking forward to the Lakers young guns giving the 2 x defending champions a run for their money. Who knows, with the aura that is the Christmas miracle and support from a rocking Staples Center on that night, the Kobe-less Lakers may just be able to pull off the upset.

    The Lakers won last yr against the Knicks. Won in 2008 against the Celtics and 2007 against the D'Antoni/Nash Suns. They're not the greatest on that day, but certainly not the worst. Not sure where you're getting that from.

    lol. its not that easy.
    I survived Stephon Marbury's inability
    Jason Kidd, Kenyon Martin, Richard Jefferson era
    I survived them all leaving, a 12-70 season and not getting the #1 pick
    Mikhail Prokhorov buys the Nets
    I survived Melodrama
    Deron Williams traded here
    I survived 248 games missed due to injury, 5 d-league call-ups, 14 different lineups in ONE season, Johan Petro
    I survived Dwightmare
    I survived Avery & PJC's rotations
    THE Offseason - Success TBD

    Yeah reorganize the entire NBA schedule for Christmas... go eat you food and open your presents if you don't wanna watch. Its idiotic for the NBA to ruin every teams schedule. It basically kills all the tickets that fans already bought [and for many other teams too when they reorganize all the matchups]. This is one of the dumbest ideas ever.

    I agree, I didn't even see the Christmas games. I just expected it would have Miami vs OKC on it. Two best players 3years running, seems like a no brainer. Miami LA is cool with a 100% Kobe, but at its current state, this is probably the worst Christmas matchup Ive seen in my lifetime.

    They can't make changes at this stage of the game, but I'm just mad at the initial matchup. OKC vs Miami is an event because of Durant and Lebron. That is b-ball at its best. LA vs MIA is a spectacle in comparison with a healthy Kobe. Now its nothing more than passed gas.

    I don't think it's fair to Lakers players that they have to get blown out and abused by the Heat on Christmas Day.

    Seems pretty cruel.

    Hey, if the Lakers beat the Heat, that's a Christmas present in itself.
