It should be the Brooklyn Nets vs New York Knicks and the 76ers vs The Celtics. I hate David Stern

Odd. I would have bet that Brooklyn would be the Christmas choice for NY or Boston.
I really don't get the Houston/Bulls matchup.

I understand the Finals rematch, but don't get the other 4..

PleaseBeNice

Agree with rockets/bulls being boring . I also dont see too much going on with LAC vs DEN

07-26-2012, 07:21 PM
No spurs? At the very least Indy/Chicago would have been better

07-26-2012, 07:22 PM
the fact that the team with the best regular season record the past 2 seasons didnt get a game disgusts me.

DAL @ CHI

Rockets at Bulls?? Did I miss something??

Is Asik's return to Chicago THAT big a deal?

Lakers + Giants
07-26-2012, 07:29 PM
At least Ima be happy this christmas :dance:

Lin vs. Hinrich.
Griffin vs. Mozgov. (Part 2)


Great matchups.

I would have done Rockets vs. Spurs for some international exposure. (For both teams)

RLundi
07-26-2012, 07:34 PM
Would've rather seen:

Knicks vs Nets
Bulls vs Pacers
Thunder vs Heat
Celtics vs Lakers
Grizzlies vs Clippers

I wish the Knicks were playing at home though.

I think they were planning Jeremy Lin vs Derrick Rose considering they went at it hard in the last matchup.


I guess the NBA didn't get the memo that Rose is out.

I agree that Knicks-Nets would've been much better suited on Christmas day than in the opener. OKC-MIA was pretty much a lock at this point.

07-26-2012, 07:44 PM
probably just trying to hype lin even more. asik returning to chicago means nothing. would've rather seen bulls/pacers. or even bulls/knicks

Aust

You'd think Rockets-Knicks would be some type of a priority with Lin returning to his former team. That's a heck of a lot more interesting than Omer Asik returning to his team..

Miami vs Lakers would have been a better Christmas, Kobe vs LeBron always is fun to watch on xmas even tho Lebron always kills him.

How can you people look over OMER ****ING ASIK returning to Chicago?! :facepalm:

AKAYaReal
07-26-2012, 07:52 PM
Reason why the Knicks vs Nets wont happen is because we open the season that way.

If you look over the yrs, the Xmas day games are always teams meeting for the 1st time for the season.

Surprised the Spurs didnt make it.

I would have much rather seen the Knicks play against the Nets to see how they match up because the knicks are back and the Nets acquired some decent players.

Replace the Bulls with the Sixers ( young rivals ) and that'd be a great christmas

I bet the Knicks-Lakers game they'll be sporting throwbacks since it's the 40th anniversary of the Knicks-Lakers in the NBA Finals. (Last championship the Knicks won. Depressing. :pity:)

the knicks have been on christmas day the past two years, rockets now have jeremy lin so that'll get people to watch, not sure about the nuggets, and the nets no have a good duo in brooklyn. :eyebrow:
