NBA Basketball is back, and on Christmas Day, fans were treated with five highly anticpated match-ups that could possibly hold long-term influence. To start the day off, the New York Knicks took on the Boston Celtics, as Carmelo Anthony and Amare Stoudemire sported the ‘Christmas’ colorways of their signature shoes. The 2011 NBA Finals rematch caused a lot of buzz, but the Heat, led by LeBron James and Dwyane Wade, went off on a quick push and held a commanding lead for the entire game. The Lakers took on MVP Derrick Rose, who wore the adidas Rose 2.0 ‘Windy City’ against Kobe’s ‘Leopard’ Supreme System. Other games included CP3’s debut in Los Angeles and defending scoring champion Kevin Durant wearing the Nike Zoom KD IV ‘Christmas’.
