  1. What did we learn about the Heat? Lakers?

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Lakers

    On Christmas 2009, LeBron James’ Cleveland Cavaliers thumped the Los Angeles Lakers pretty good, winning by 15. Come June, that game was meaningless. That 2009 game looked a lot like the 2010 Lakers/Heat game. Which is to say, the Heat’s 16-point win has no real predictive value. If these two teams do meet again in…

    Phil Jackson and LeBron James may not like having to work — you don’t hear police and emergency room doctors complaining — but Christmas is a bounty for NBA fans.

    Dwyane Wade missed the Miami Heat’s shoot around Thursday morning in Phoenix with a sore knee. Coach Erik Spoelstra said he would be a game-time decision against the Suns for Thursday night. The real reason this is news — does this mean he might not go on Christmas Day against the Lakers? Are you kidding…

    It’s really not the Christmas season until Heat Miser and Cold Miser are on the television and Phil Jackson is complaining about having to play on Christmas.
