I'm still waiting for the NBA to embrace a Trae vs Luka matchup every Christmas for the next decade...until then, this is the best possible scenario. :clap: :clap:


And with the improvements NYK has made, this should actually be a competitive game. :starwars




Congrats to Ressler and Schlenk. From a complete dumpster fire to one of the most highly regarded franchises in only a few years. :beer:

This must be a huge deal for you life long fans. Can't believe it's been since 1989. Growing up a Bulls fan with MJ I got spoiled to the point where I expected an afternoon Christmas game every year...and I think we got it too.

I would go to the Chicago Stadium or later the United Center with my family and me and 20,000 other Jews would watch the game and then we would scramble back to the suburbs looking for a deli or Chinese restaurant to eat at. I remember one year we went to a Deli and as we were eating we see BJ Armstrong come in and pick up food.


Very happy I get to share in this event with you diehards who have been here a helluva lot longer than me.

It's been a while, but I remember it was usually just a double header and kinda good with it. Good for the Hawks.
Where the offseason has more buzz happens.

Indeed I have the 89 game on VHS it was on CBS. Had to tape it to go watch the movie Look whose talking? :-?

For the record I was the one pushing to watch it. :roll:

Weren’t good enough with Mutombo, Jj or the 60 win 2015 club, I’d say it’s long overdue.
GO HAWKS!!! :thumbsup:
