But we know this: Nat will do No You are playing a game on Christmas day.
The Christmas schedule has leaked and while other struggling teams like the Los Angeles Lakers and New York Knicks are playing, the Nets are not.

Keith Smith summed it up well: “It’s worth mentioning that the Brooklyn Nets aren’t playing on Christmas Day. Clearly the NBA doesn’t feel comfortable giving a marquee slot to a team that’s at least in semi-rebuilding mode.” Maybe Christmas is coming.
It’s a point everyone can accept: The NBA doesn’t know what Brooklyn will look like on Christmas Day, so why would they give a primetime national television spot to a crew that might miss its biggest stars?
Kevin and Kyrie’s future
Had the league known that Durant and Irving would be on the team, the Nets might have found a place on the Christmas schedule.
The fact that there is so much uncertainty about their plans really hurts the team’s prospects.
Some expected that the drama around those two players would still continue at this point in the off-season.
Still, little has changed since the beginning of free agency, when Durant’s demands were first leaked.
Both sides are not moving and we seem to be at a standstill.
The Nets won’t entertain fans on Christmas Day, but they can still deliver the best drama of the season.
