5. It’s Christmas, After All

The NBA schedule-makers give basketball fans several gifts every year at this time, and the biggest one of all this holiday season is the matchup between the Cleveland Cavaliers and Miami Heat.

Storylines abound and rivalries will be renewed, but at the heart of this Christmas Day game is a competition between two of the most compelling franchises in the Eastern Conference over the last 10 seasons.

And one player has been key to the changing fortunes of those two franchises: LeBron James. Now he returns to South Beach with the team he spurned four years ago on a mission to duplicate the success he had with the Heat.

Convoluted, yes, but compelling all the same.

Thanks Santa.
