What do you think off when you hear Christmas?

Trees, sleigh bells, holly, and carols.. ?? :ee:

Well, this year, apart from gorging yourself on the feast and drowning yourself in eggnog.. get ready to celebrate it with the Big Daddy and Mr. Selfish... :P :P :P

NBA schedules are announced, and on Christmas day, the newly rejuvenated - Shaq-o-fied Miami Heat will take on the once-mighty-now-hanging-by-the-Kobe-thread LA Lakers...

Wow.. Could Shaq be the Most Dominating Center back in Staples but with a wrong uniform? Can Kobe prove himself? I don't know - can't predict - but its going to be one heck of a game..

Don't miss it.. !!! (I am giving you like 5 months notice, hello... !!! )

NEW YORK (AP) - The NBA is giving Kobe, Shaq and the fans quite a present.

The former Los Angeles Lakers teammates will face each other for the first time as opponents Dec. 25, when O'Neal's Miami Heat face Bryant's Lakers at Staples Center.

The matchup between Bryant and O'Neal will be televised by ABC and is the highlight of the league's schedule, which was released Monday. They teamed to win three NBA championships for the Lakers but parted on contentious terms when O'Neal was dealt to the Heat in a blockbuster trade following a loss to Detroit in the NBA Finals. O'Neal's first game with the Heat will be Nov. 3 at New Jersey on ESPN, with his home debut against LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers the next night on TNT.

The season tips off with the new-look Houston Rockets, who added Tracy McGrady to Yao Ming, facing the champion Pistons on Nov. 2 on TNT. Another early marquee matchup comes Nov. 4, when Minnesota and reigning league MVP Kevin Garnett take on the Denver Nuggets and rising star Carmelo Anthony in a rematch of a first-round playoff series last season.

The Heat, thanks to the addition of O'Neal, have a major TV presence with a total of 23 games on ABC, ESPN or TNT - and another nine on NBA TV. The Lakers also have 23 games in all on ABC, ESPN, ESPN2 or TNT, with another eight on NBA TV. The Lakers' lone trip to Miami this season, March 17, will be on TNT.

The NBA is also featuring for the first time a weeklong series of games between regional opponents, division rivals and historic playoff matchups that it's billing as "Rivalry Week." Matchups included in the games from Feb. 22 to March 2 include Houston at San Antonio, the Lakers at the Pistons, Philadelphia at New York, and Boston at the Lakers.

ESPN will televise 65 regular-season games, with ESPN2 airing seven more. TNT will show 52 regular-season games, while ABC has 18 games scheduled. NBA TV will televise 96 regular-season games. ABC will air the NBA Finals for the third straight season.
