I've had to work on Thanksgiving the last few years and just now realized there isn't a TNT double header tonight. Did Stern waive the white flag to the NFL?

I don't mind the NBA not playing on Thanksgiving. Their Christmas lineup is huge, and it really isn't fair to the players on the marquee teams to miss Christmas and Thanksgiving with their families.

I was curious so I looked it up. Just going back to 1990, there weren't any NBA games on Thanksgiving in 1990, 1991, 1992, 1993, 1998, 2006, 2007, 2011, and 2012.

I don't think they ever did except for a few select years for some reason. I was wondering this too. I wish there were games but then again the Christmas lineup is always sick.
