Top 10 NBA Christmas Takeaways

10) Orlando's Stan van Gundy seems to think that his base salary of $4 million a year isn't enough to justify working on the holiday

9) Despite the holiday wishes of tens of millions of people on the day of their Savior's birth, LeBron James had a triple double, rather than a fatal case of spontaneous combustion, followed up by an eternity of underworld torment

8) The Blazers and Warriors also played on the holiday, but since it was really late in the day in the Eastern time zone, it was substantially less blasphemous

7) The Knicks won a physical home game against a good Bulls team, and it wasn't even 1995

6) In what can only be called a Christmas Miracle, Hedo Turkoglu dialed back the clock to when he wasn't entirely useless

5) Kevin Durant scored 44 points on 14 of 20 shooting, because unlike the other superstars in the league, he's doesn't hate Baby Jebus

4) Shaquille O'Neal followed up on his Boston Pops appearance by fouling out in allegro

3) Amare Stoudemire Grinched Derrick Rose, not that Rose will admit it

2) Carmelo Anthony took the day off due to travel difficulties in going to the half dozen Eastern teams that he's supposed to be getting traded to

1) Dozens of NBA cheerleaders gave us all the gift of a Yule log
