It has been a good while but the NBA has resumed with a December 25th start date. Perfect time to start on Christmas, in my opinion. The games lined are the Boston Celtics vs New York Knicks, Miami Heat vs Dallas Mavericks, Chicago Bulls vs Los Angeles Lakers, Orlando Magic vs Oklahoma City Thunder and the Los Angeles Clippers vs Golden State Warriors. I think this lineup more than makes up for the few months we have missed out on.
There has been some interesting trades that have taken place. Lamar Odom has been traded to the Dallas Mavericks. A big move. Odom has a lot of experience which adds to the already experienced Mavericks team. Chris Paul has been traded from the New Orleans Hornets to the Los Angeles Clippers. Paul was originally looking to go to the New York Knicks. I believe going to the Clippers is a better move. Him and Blake Griffin will have some fun together.
After nearly 2 months of sorting everything out, we finally have an NBA season! If the whole season were to be canceled, what a bummer that would have been. Some veterans would of probably called it a career. I am looking forward to Christmas!
