Damn, what a long offseason. After and entire restructuring of the CBA, finalized as a near 50/50 split of the $4 billion in NBA revenue, finally, we have games. The most intriguing part of the whole ordeal are the story lines which have become the result of the lockout: A new LeBron, Chris Paul in LA, Kobe already with an injury, the Knicks, the Thunder, the Bulls…wow. Chirstmas 25th, 2012 marks the start to what will surely play out as one of the most interesting seaons in NBA history whether you’ve been loosely watching on Sportcenter or religiously tuned into The Herd (I’m the latter). Finally, we have games and we can all be happy about that. Catch the Christmas day game schedule after the jump. Merry Christmas from PHONEkeysWALLET!!
