Nah, he don't dem ratings
I'm surprised they wouldn't have put LA/Miami on Christmas or have that opening night & put Celtics/Heat on Christmas..Hindshght being 20/20 I'd bet Stern would have saved Miami/Boston for Christmas and had LA/Miami opening night...Ray's return to Boston is a big storyline regardless, but Lakers mediocre start to season takes away a bit of steam if they faced Miami on Christmas imo...
