Fair enough :p

I think Christmas, for a vast amount of people, is a family holiday though and considering how many players have kids, I think there should be a few days off for teams.

I'm not a huge family guy but I do think Christmas is a big event for families. It's meaning may have changed over the years and it certainly isn't as spiritual as it used to be, but I still think players should have the right to spend such a big family holiday with their wives, children and wider families.

The NBA lockout will soon be nearly three weeks old, but the league office is going ahead Tuesday with the release of its full 2011-12 schedule.

A league spokesman on Sunday confirmed an NBA.com report that the schedule will be released Tuesday afternoon. NBA TV will broadcast a schedule show starting at 2 p.m., with the schedule to be sent out at 2:15 p.m.

The Miami Herald reported in Sunday's editions that the Dallas Mavericks have been tabbed to play host to the Miami Heat on Christmas Day in an NBA Finals rematch, but that's almost certainly contingent on the lockout being lifted in time for the regular season to start as planned on Nov. 1.

Sources told ESPN.com that the schedule, as it stands, calls for the Mavericks to open the season Nov. 1 at home against the Chicago Bulls and raise their championship banner.

But since the league imposed a lockout at 12:01 a.m. on July 1, owners and players have yet to even lock in a date to resume labor negotiations, with pessimism rising leaguewide about the season starting on time as the sides remain miles apart in their demands.

The NBA released its schedule two weeks later last summer  and in two installments  but that's largely because the league was waiting for a slew of big-name free agents to land before finalizing things. Because of this summer's lockout, there are no roster moves to wait on.

The NBA, insisting that expenses far outpace revenues, laid off 114 employees last week, which computes to 11 percent of its overall work force.

Hawks/Magic (12pm) ESPN
Bulls/Knicks (2pm) ABC
Heat/Mavericks (5pm) ABC
Grizzlies/Thunder (8pm) ESPN
Lakers/Clippers (10:30pm) ESPN

Unless changes are made, I heard that is the lineup.

I don't think any regular season game can excite me (When it comes to the HEAT) ... I'm focused on the finals! (But I understand it was just business... They'll get it this year, if their is a season)



But somebody posted ......... Thunder vs Ny ( Good game right their )

Others I would like to see:

Bos vs Clippers
Magic vs lakers (Maybe Howard future home) Nba loves drama:D
Mavs vs Bulls (Good test for the Bulls)

Bulls at Knicks
Clippers at Thundr
Nets at Magic

:confused: I can agree with everything else but the Nets havent been on national television in ages let alone on a Christmas day... I can see them making it only if they make it vs the Knicks and promote it as a NY rilvary type of thing.

Believe this or not ....

I think the nba wants another star player, to team up with Cp3 in the N.O so bad, so that city can have a very good team and a good fan base.

But all the other Owners/Gm's are watching very carefully, to see how the league handles this.
