Game: Heat vs. Lakers
David Stern loves his fans and he proved it by scheduling Shaq's first game against the Lakers on Christmas Day—O'Neal was dealt to Miami over the summer. The Diesel and Kobe ignored each other, adding to the drama. The Heat won 104-102 in OT. Shaq had 24 point and 11 rebounds, Kobe dropped 42, but Flash stole their thunder with 29 points and 10 assists.
