LeBron James says his favorite Christmas games are in LA

LeBron James says his favorite Christmas games are in LA

It was a big moment for Durant, as evidenced by his torch passing comment, but for LeBron it was just another play, game, and Finals.

It's been established that losing the Super Bowl feels a lot worse than winning it feels good, and I have to imagine the adage carries over and applies to the NBA Finals as well.

It is a multi-stellar cast, which of course highlights the reissue of the last three league finals. After all, James ruined Durant's first career trip to the NBA Finals in 2012 when the Miami Heat topped the Oklahoma City Thunder, giving LeBron his first championship ring.

James said "I wish I could have that play over again".

There's LeBron James, Kevin Durant and Golden State against Cleveland, for fans wanting more of the NBA's reigning rivalry. It was a huge collapse for James and the Cavaliers, especially because it put them in a 3-0 hole. I don't want to say 'next.' How many seasons is it for KD? "I mean, listen. I've lost five Finals. So, I've only had probably four games at home, out of the 12, so, you know, being in the Staples Center has always been pretty good".

"I don't think it's changed", James said. "... It's my turn to ... enjoy being one of the best players in the world".

Let's not forget that James became the first player in NBA history to average a triple-double in the NBA Finals. He'd have been the ideal player to get on Christmas but the league only played two or three games back then, and his Toronto Raptors were only shown once. "He was definitely the difference maker".

"You would be unhuman if it didn't (feel excitement)". But obviously, this is a new format, this is a new team for us.

Speaking to reporters ahead of the Christmas Day matchup against the Warriors, LeBron explained why he won't lose any sleep over the 2017 Finals.

Carter was one of those players who fans never exhausted of seeing at the beginning of his career, a time when it was not possible to hire a service to watch all the games in the league and could not look for the best plays on the Internet. So, it's kind of always fun to be in L.A. and play in front of that crowd and have that atmosphere.

What may make Staples Center his favorite place to play on Christmas Day is the amount of success he has had in the arena.
