It's a Christmas Day matchup fit for a King.
LeBron James and his Cleveland Cavaliers are scheduled to visit NBA MVP Stephen Curry and the defending league champion Golden State Warriors in a rematch of the Finals on Christmas Day, league sources are telling ESPN.
Although the matchup hasn't been formally announced, it's expected to headline the NBA's Christmas Day slate of games, which will be made official next week. It will be interesting to see King James, with a healthy Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love beside him, take on Curry and the Warriors. James, playing without an injured Irving and Love, still managed to push the Warriors to six games in the NBA Finals this past June.
The Cavs-Warriors game will serve as the main-event game on a Christmas schedule which will also see Anthony Davis and the New Orleans Pelicans visit Dwyane Wade and the Miami Heat in an earlier game.
