5 questions about the NBA’s weird 2018 Christmas schedule

The NBA released key games from the 2018-19 season schedule on Wednesday, including opening week national TV games, the Christmas Day schedule, and the docket for Martin Luther King Day. December 25 is really the marquee day on the calendar, and the pentuple-header for 2018 goes like this: Bucks at Knicks, Thunder at Rockets, Celtics at Sixers, Lakers at Warriors, Blazers at Jazz.

I have some questions.

What did LeBron do to deserve this?

You’d think the NBA would be thrilled that LeBron chose the Lakers. One of his rewards is stepping into a Christmas Day viper pit on must-watch national TV on the road 30-something games into his debut L.A. season? Sheesh.

This Knicks on Christmas thing every year … can we not?

I gently propose that if you win fewer than 35 games and don’t add an All-Star in the offseason, you shouldn’t be getting Christmas Day games. Even if you’re a guaranteed sell-out at any record, you play in the Mecca of basketball, and you are really convenient for NBA headquarters employees.

Is Christmas Day not a national holiday in Canada?

The reigning East regular season champs made the single best player addition in the conference over the summer and still can’t get on T.V. on December 25. You don’t need to blow Spurs-Raptors on
