Yes, that was a knock on LeBron and the bowling Shaun Phillips, but not Eastern Carolina or Middle Tennessee.
Why this game is on prime-time I will never know...especially when the best game of the day is being played last...when the entire East Coast, most of the Midwest, and parts of the West coast will be in some food/bourbon induced coma and miss it. I know I'm ranting, but nobody is posting in here anyway. It's this kind of scheduling that makes me wish the NFL owned Christmas like they own Thanksgiving, because even unwatchable football is watchable.
Yes, that was a knock on the NBA product, but not Jacksonville or the Houston Texans.
Lining up a Rose-less Bulls team in a match-up of sub-500 teams, followed by Anthony going I-so 600 times for 42 points and the Knicks lose by 20, followed by Miami against a D-League team, followed by a game where Pop might sit Duncan and Parker (who knows), but it makes sense...it's Christmas, that it is no wonder that 74% of America would be asleep when an actual game between fun-to-watch players is on.
Yes, that was a knock on Carmelo Anthony and the Lakers, but not Chris Paul or Stephen Curry.
All this is going to force me to actually pay attention to all the people who will be in my house. My hard to understand Asian mother-in-law, my brother-in-law who always finishes my expensive beers then asks if I would like one of his Bud Lights, My sister-in-law who always hands me her baby when her phone rings, my wife who complains I've had too much scotch and am spending too much time in the bathroom (hiding out)...these are the people the NBA is forcing me to be closer to this Christmas day.
Yes, that was a knock on my in-laws, but not Christmas.
Anyhow, Miami minus whatever. Danny Glover, whoops...I mean LeBron will be rapping, dancing, and showing his mouth piece a lot. Try not to fall asleep before Clippers/Warriors.
And Yes, that was a knock on LeBron, but not the Lethal Weapon trilogy. Well, maybe Lethal Weapon 3.
Hey moron, can you tell me when the schedules came out? Were Kobe or Rose ruled out for these games before they were scheduled? No, so pull your ho ho head out and maybe post some relevant handicapping information instead of this BS. Enjoy your coal!
