It's certainly an odd choice. Any guesses on the rest of the schedule?

Talk about a ratings explosion.

Knicks/Lakers would have been my guess, just so Lin could play in NY again and have teh 2 mega markets.

but I can see them wanting those two separated (but both still playing that day).

He confirmed OKC/NY and CHI/BKN last summer.

Knicks are on because they're the Knicks. Thats obvious. Washington is up and coming and is a decent market (I assume).

Maybe the NBA is trying to generate a rivalry between the two. Washington have such a bright future, exposing them to the public a lot will increase their popularity.

Why Wizards though? You would think NBA would try and do a Chicago vs NYK instead..

Eh...I think that's a waste of a slot for a Christmas Day game.

CLE @ MIA
LAC @ GSW
HOU @ LAL
NYK/OKC @ CHI

I think that would have been a nice lineup.

^^^ there are quite a few games on Christmas day. CHI will probably play CLE or MIA, OKC, LAC, HOU and Dall instead. While NYK vs CHI would get better ratings. They will get great ratings from 2 teams instead.

12pm: Knicks/Wizards

2pm: Clippers/Nets (KG vs Doc Rivers for the final time) or GS/LAC (the grudge match)

5pm: Cavs/Heat (LeBron returns)

8pm: Spurs/Bulls (Parker vs Rose; Duncan vs Gasol)

10:30: Thunder/Lakers (Durant vs Kobe)

That's probably what the lineup will look like.

My wish list is...

Hornets @ Pacers
Bulls @ Spurs
Mavs @ Rockets
Cavs @ Heat
Thunder @ Clippers

Well, it's nice that the NBA gives the Wiz a high-profile national game with an easy win.

Yes, cause the Hornet/Pacers will cause a ratings explosion ...

Wizards vs Raptors would of been a good choice. Two up and coming teams in the east, plus they usually have some exciting games.

Which will get better ratings:

Knicks-Wizards on Christmas or next year's Super Bowl?

Jeez thanks guys. Thanks for thinking this game is boring because of the Wizards. Sorry we are not a bigger market. But we got some good names on this team. Maybe not the most exciting, but good.

lol, I would rather watch D.C than N.Y

Aside from Calderon, there's nobody on the Knicks roster I enjoy watching play. Maybe Shump, maybe Hardaways kid. But not much.

D.C on the other hand has Gortat and a fun back court.

Meh.
Paul Pierce may be on a little decline. But this year, unlike on Brooklyn, he will have help taking shots. Wall dishing him the ball will make it easier for him.

Yeah he's a solid player I've just never been much of a fan.

Only guy from that Boston run I liked was Ray Allen.

I'm more interested to see if Otto puts in work during the off season and improves any.

Both teams will be better most think. I think they will be the 4 and 5 seeds

Wheres the "be nice to the Knicks or get infracted" sticky thread?

We've been dealing with this crap since the inception of this forum. Houston fans have one bad offseason and get protective custody?
