Good Day PTRockers! And Happy Holidays! I know it's Christmas Day, but it's also Opening Day for the 2011-12 NBA Season. It's finally here. After five and a half months of locking out, the season is finally set to open. Our beloved Spurs do not play today, but that's probably a good thing, because who needs more stress on Christmas, right? We've got five games today! A Christmas Holiday present from Commissioner Stern to all of us. Better late than never, right? Don't do us fans any favors Dave, like, oh I dunno, discounting League Pass. But hey, who cares right? Fans get to watch basketball, and for that alone we should be thankful? Yea. It's only money, and not his money. Let's get to it.
Tipping off at Noon Eastern time on TNT, the New York Knicks host the Boston Celtics at Madison Square Garden. A nice big market game to get things started, eh?? Immediately following, flip to ABC to watch the
defending NBA Champion our Southwest Divison rival Dallas Mavericks take on the reigning East Champs Miami Heat, in what's sure to be billed as a rematch of last years NBA Finals. Next on ABC, we shoot to LA, where Kobe and the Lakers host reigning MVP Derrick Rose and his Chicago Bulls at Staples. Flipping over to ESPN, we'll see KD and OKC hosting Dwight Howard and his Orlando Magic. And finally, to close out today's ratings bonanza, in what, 2 weeks ago would've surely been scrub game of the night, Head Coach Mark Jackson and his Golden State Warriors host reigning Rookie of the Year Blake Griffin!, Chris Paul!, Chauncey Billups!, Mo Williams!, DeAndre Jordan and the rest of the LA Clippers. Should be a gooden!
