Found November 21, 2012 on Next Impulse Sports:
Ordinarily I’m not a guy who likes to fast forward past Thanksgiving just to focus on Christmas but I couldn’t just ignore this awesome new Christmas ad from the NBA featuring Dwight Howard, Carmelo Anthony, Joe Johnson, Russell Westbrook and Dwayne Wade.

Awesome commercial. Still not a fan of those uniforms though. Article found on: Cosby Sweaters
