With Christmas Day falling on a Sunday this year, the NBA is going to have some really compelling matchups for spectators to compete with the NFL.
But if what Philadelphia 76ers star James Harden is teasing is real, he might have done just that.
Harden had just four words on Twitter on Sunday.
"Christmas in the Garden!" He wrote, alluding to a possible game against the New York Knicks.
Harden's tweet immediately went viral, garnering over 3,000 likes in just 15 minutes.
Fans are already cheering for the prospects of a 76ers-Nicks game on Christmas Day.
Not everyone is so sure that James Harden meant Madison Square Garden.
Some are wondering whether he meant TD Garden instead of a showdown with the defending Eastern Conference champion Boston Celtics.
The 76ers-Celtics matchup will be even more compelling if we're being honest.
But TD Garden doesn't usually go by "The Garden," so if that's the case, Harden is definitely trolling Knicks fans.
Of course, any primetime game featuring the Philadelphia 76ers is a must-watch on TV.
Harden and current scoring champion Joel Embiid are a tough combination.
However, keeping the Sixers away from primetime will be even harder if they do what is rumored and trade for Brooklyn Nets star Kevin Durant.
Will we see James Harden and the Philadelphia 76ers on Christmas Day? If so, who would be his opponent?
