I hope there is no Clippers/Lakers game this season because that crap is beyond redundant at this point. "Oh, those youngins might beat dem Clippers this time now!" No. Just no. Blake Griffin probably be like "Ugh, gotta dunk 50 times on the Lakers again? They don't pay me enough!" Make it one game if you have to, but not 3 or 4.

:no:

It'll be interesting to see which teams have the easier schedules and how 'light' the Warriors or Cavs schedule will be. Just saying. I wish there were more rivalry games, or game series like in baseball to really get that rivalry atmosphere going.

lakers vs clippers really? So ****ing boring.

Wouldve preferred facing the wolves or 76ers to see a battle of youth.

I'm surprised it is not Bulls vs Knicks.

They ****ed up the Xmas games so badly. Spurs/Bulls... ugh. Lakers/Clippers? I would've rather played the Clips and let Chicago play in Miami. Have the Lakers play a younger team if they must play.

Agree 100%

NBA couldve at least tried to get a rivalry started between Lakers/T-Wolves instead of sending the Lakers out there against a top 5 team.

Spurs/Bulls? Is Pau leaving Bulls for Spurs gonna be the storyline? Didnt know Pau was held in such high regards in the NBA. Chicago/NY wouldve been good - remade teams. Or Chicago/Miami for obvious reasons.

Clips shouldve played SA as 2 teams battling to see who plays GS.

NBA dropped the ball big time this Christmas. Probably go fishing

I guess it's cuz the Lakers 'always play on Christmas' and 'cuz they're the Lakers.'

I agree they won't be a good sight to see on Christmas, no star there anymore, just hopeful future stars. No way that will be good. See the Lakers get smashed on Christmas...like watching the Lions on Thanksgiving.

NBA's been pretty hit or miss with x-mas games lately...

You would think with the Billions of dollars the NBA has they would at least do some focus groups/polling among their fans and/or journalists who can easily tell them what would be compelling match-ups for Christmas.

That's easy to schedule around in December when it's playoffs.
