The most likable & classiest player on those Warriors finally got his much deserved contract extension today. 4 yrs - $100 Million that will kick in after the 2019-2020 season.
As for the Christmas Day Games, I'm very happy that the NBA finally woke up for a change & didn't have the Knicks play a Christmas Day Game. I didn't realized that out of 71 NBA seasons of having Christmas Day Games, the Knicks were played on Christmas 53 times (most out of all the teams). Hopefully, the NBA will keep the useless Knicks off the Christmas schedule for the foreseeable future.
Clippers - Lakers -- I'm sure that ESPN will not only make sure that the Lakers are the home team in this game. But, they also win that game. Besides, I'm only rooting for LeBron & that is it. The rest of the Lakers (including Anthony Davis) can get lost & stay lost. Hopefully, the Clippers will put up a fight in this game & make it fun to watch.
Bucks - 76ers -- Just like last yr, I'm rooting for the Greek Freak.
Rockets - those Warriors -- James Harden & those crummy Rockets will find a way to lose to those Warriors like they always do & adding Russell Westbrook to the Rockets will not change that.
Celtics - Raptors -- Since Kyrie Irving is in Brooklyn now, there is no reason what so ever to even tolerate rooting for the Celtics. Plus, its about time the Raptors got a Christmas game at home. They deserved it & hopefully they won't fall off the map like some people are hoping for.
Pelicans - Nuggets -- This may actually be a fun game to watch.
BTW, did anyone check out that Carmelo Anthony interview on ESPN yesterday? He was making excuses on why NBA teams have basically want nothing to do with him & how he still thinks that he can still be helpful to a championship contending team (Lakers).
