|Andrew and Dylan Van Cleve with the King and I|
With that being said, the NBA season started on Christmas Day with five games on tap.
The first one being at Madison Square Garden at Noon as the Knicks were hosting the Boston Celtics.
The last time I saw the Knicks play the Celtics on Christmas Day was back in 1985 when the Knicks trailed the Celtics by 25 points in the third quarter before they miraculously came back to win the game in double overtime. I remember it being called the "Miracle on 34th Street."
On this day, the King and I were joined by the Ultimate Sports fan Andrew Van Cleve and his son Dylan aka the Ultimate Sports Baby.
It was great to see them again as the Knicks wound up winning a thriller as Kevin Garnett missed the last shot as the Knicks won the game, 106-104.
The Knicks were lead by Carmelo Anthony who led the way with 37 points.
The Garden is once again the place to be to see NBA basketball.
These days tickets are hard to come by. Hopefully royalty can work some magic so you can experience it for yourself when the time comes.
If so, please let me know and I'll see what I can do for you.
Thank you for reading and following along.
