What's better: NBA on Christmas or the NFL on Thanksgiving?
Rocking around the Christmas tree is all good, but it's definitely better with some NBA basketball.
Exchanging gifts and watching some of the best athletes run and gun their way up the court go hand-in-hand now. The NBA takes full advantage of families gathering by scheduling their biggest stars. LeBron James and the superteam Golden State Warriors are staples most years, so you know the quality of the basketball is good.
You never know what you're going to get with NFL Thanksgiving. At least you know the stars are always out for NBA Christmas.
NBA Christmas is fine if you like ignoring family during one of the most important holidays of the year. At least with Thanksgiving, you get to enjoy a cornucopia of food while grown men throw each other around on the field.
Nothing distracts from awkward family dinners quite like football. You can avoid talking to Aunt Sally about school or Uncle Glen about his uncomfortable political leanings by throwing on one of the many games of the day. Football is not only entertaining but also rescues us from awful conversations.
