The NBA recently announced that it’ll release its full schedule for the 2022-23 season on Wednesday, August 17.
That means we will know when all of the biggest teams and stars will face off against each other in the upcoming year.
However, a few select games have already leaked, including the entirety of who is squaring off on Christmas Day 2022.
As you know, Christmas is one of the biggest days of the year for the league and it features many of the largest talents in the world.
If LeBron plays in this year’s Christmas Day game, he’ll be the first NBA player to play in 17 (!!!) Christmas Day games.

This year, it looks like the Los Angeles Lakers will play against the Dallas Mavericks on December 25.
That means that LeBron James will play in the 17th Christmas Day game of his career.
Now, there are a couple of things to keep in mind before people start celebrating: his health and his team’s abilities.
Still, this is yet another amazing milestone from James.
King James Christmas
The Mavericks are no joke and James will have his work cut out for him when he faces off against Luka Doncic and his squad.
Following their last couple of seasons, a Lakers victory on Christmas Day is no sure thing.
In fact, most people wouldn’t put their money on LA.
Additionally, James has been missing more and more games lately due to injuries.
Still, he will move heaven and earth to make sure he is healthy and ready to go on Christmas.
December 25 isn’t just a big day for fans, it’s a big day for players too.
By the time Christmas rolls around, we will have a much better idea of how well James and his team are doing.
Will they have corrected the mistakes from last season and gotten back on the right track?
Or will they be facing the same struggles that ended their season early?
