Every year, all the NBA fans look forward to Christmas Day basketball. I was telling my literature professor today how sickened I would be if I didn't get to see my Knicks donning the Green jerseys ! :(

So, will there be any type of basketball on Christmas? Yes ? No? Don't know ? Maybe just pre-season games?


I want to hear your thoughts !

No there would have to be a deal done at most a week from now for that to happen.

You don't think is possible they just skip the pre-season to save time for real games?

AndyfromNeptune
11-17-2011, 07:39 PM
Or at least significantly cut short the pre-season to 2-3 games ?

They need at least 30 days to start a season, you do the math.

hahahahah.. but on a serious note what type of basketball ?

I wanna follow along. Can you give me some information on interesting teams/leagues to take a look at ?

Any teams with American players ?

Why the :facepalm: ??

There are tons of teams with American players who were really good in college and couldn't make it in the NBA.

Its a legit question. I'm sorry there are no winners or losers otherwise I'd expect you to choose the Patriots...against your own favorite Giants team.

thats the best competition ( with the best teams from each countrys national leagues) with all the info and the current players, there are some americna of course.
Then the main national leagues to take attention to are Spanish, Greek and Russian.

If I'm not mistaken, wasn't the regular season supposed to start already? :eyebrow: Too late for that question, I think.

A better question would be…..
Will the next meeting to negotiate the new CBA happen before Christmas?
