According to Frank Isola of the New York Daily News, the New York Knicks will host the Chicago Bulls on Christmas day
It’s tempting to read into what this means — Amar’e Stoudemire and Carlos Boozer’s signings weren’t the biggest ones of the summer, but they meant a lot to both the Knicks and the Bulls. The league seems to think that the teams, who play in two of the league’s biggest markets, will be good enough next season to be worthy of one of the five Christmas Day spots. 
According to Isola, LeBron and the Heat are scheduled to make his first post-“decision” visit to the Garden on December 17th; one has to imagine he’ll have a date with Kobe and the Lakers on the 25th.

    Boozer will be injured by Thanksgiving and will miss the game.

    I guess the NBA is really trying to get dads to spend quality time with their kids on Christmas instead of parked on the couch this Christmas. Missed opportunity to have either Heat, Celts, Magic, or Lakers play each other.

    Uh … you are aware that there are other games on Christmas, right? Usually about four or five games total. Plenty of room for the Heat and the Lakers to be on the card.

    Just a guess:
    NBA Tip-off game to start season- Heat @ Lakers
    Christmas Day- Heat @ Cavs

    Just as a side note..
    I think it also leaves room for another green-red uniform combination with the whole.
    NY Knicks St Patricks jerseys and the Bulls red jerseys because they did a similar thing with the Heat last year.
    A colour on colour/color combination.
    Well that’s another way of seeing it anyway.
