By now, most Christmas gifts are safely packed in the sleigh, Santa having received his requests and acted accordingly. But for some girls and boys, they can't find out if ol' Kris Kringle will truly deliver their goodies until the Lakers and Cavs tip off Christmas Day.

"HQ was busting with letters, quite frankly," he said. "The outcome of Friday's game could very well depend on which of these rugrats was naughty or nice."

The following is a sampling of letters sent to Santa regarding the game.
