I mean, I feel what both of them were saying.
just imagine how difficult and frustrating it would be to wake up to your cooking staff making you omelets and apple cinnamon pancakes and hot chocolate for you and your family, then opening up presents and watching your kids' faces as they see you their iPhone 9 and Galaxy Gear 4, and you unveil the new NBA sized halfcourt you added next to their bedroom... all on the 24th instead of the 25th.
(and somewhere along the way, I'm going to have to hear both of them say something about how much they love their opportunity to be in the NBA and they don't take that for granted one bit)
