Christmas Day in the NBA has become a forum for players to reveal holiday-themed fashions. Each year, a new range limited-edition, seasonal sneaker colorways make their debut on the feet of players. Among the more memorable kicks in recent years were Kobe Bryant’s lime green “Grinch” sneakers. This season will have players styled head-to-toe in holiday gear. To accompany the shoes that will likely hit the hardwood and to celebrate 65 years of Christmas Day games, the league will be outfitting its stars in special “BIG Color” uniforms.
All teams competing on Christmas Day will wear a version of the colorful game day threads. The participating squads include: Brooklyn Nets, Los Angeles Lakers, New York Knicks, Miami Heat, Boston Celtics, Oklahoma City Thunder, Houston Rockets, Chicago Bulls, Los Angeles Clippers and Denver Nuggets.
The uniforms are simplistic in design, featuring a monochromatic color scheme with solid color team logos, names, and numbers framed with minimal accent color and a shimmer finish for a bold statement. The BIG Color jerseys are part of the adidas Winter Court Collection, which also includes new warm-up jackets and shooting shirts.
“I grew up watching games on Christmas Day and it’s a huge honor to have your team play in front of millions around the world,” said All-NBA center Dwight Howard of the Los Angeles Lakers. “I’m excited to wear these BIG Color uniforms that bring style and flare to the court and represent my team!”
Fans can purchase the Winter Court Collection for all NBA teams at NBAStore.com, the NBA Store on Fifth Avenue in New York City, Champs Sports, and team retailers on November 15th.
Fans can expect to see these “BIG Color” on December 25th:

“What is a GIF?” That’s a question that many people might be asking themselves after the news on Monday that “GIF” was chosen as the Oxford American Dictionaries’ word of the year. After beating out the likes of “YOLO” and “superstorm,” GIF will definitely be a word that enters the public conversation more and more in the near future. However, sports fans are...
It’s a known fact that Los Angeles has the highest population of homelessness in the U.S. Lakers leading man, Kobe Bryant has started a foundation to combat that.
Mission: Kobe Bryant is a 5-part series that shows life on Skid Row through some of the inhabitants eyes. Bryant takes you there and stops by the LA Mission where he speaks to four men seeking to improve their lives...
“Skid Row is literally a few blocks away [from the Staples Center], but it’s not something that really registers, it’s something that you kind of look over, because homelessness has been a part of our culture for so many years, it’s just something that kind of fades in the background without you really driving [...]
Enjoy the following sentence, because this will probably be the only time you ever see it written: Kobe Bryant is no Raja Bell. Bryant may have five NBA championship rings and a trophy case full of various Most Valuable Player awards, but the 2012 edition of the future Hall of Fame shooting guard is well below Bell circa 2006 on the defensive end. In everything else, Bryant puts...
Mike D'Antoni is already making his mark on the Los Angeles Lakers, but it doesn't look like he'll be ready for his debut on the Staples Center sidelines for a few more days.
As long as Kobe Bryant's there, the Lakers may not have too much trouble.
Bryant has averaged 42.0 points in his last three home games against the Phoenix Suns, who have lost seven of eight...
I have really been intrigued by the saga unfolding out in LA LA land. The Los Angeles Lakers publicly welcomed new head coach Mike D’Antoni to their bench on Friday. Though D’Antoni will never be held in the highest regard in my green goggles, I must say his usually very dry press conferences turned candid and amusing Friday. [...]
Magic Johnson seems to have made it his mission as of late to criticize Los Angeles Lakers executive vice president Jim Buss as much as possible. On Wednesday, Magic wrote on Twitter that he had been silent for a few days because he was mourning the Lakers’ decision to hire Mike D’Antonio over Phil Jackson. If that seems a bit dramatic, that’s because it is. Kobe Bryant does...
Is D’Antoni a better fit than uncle Phil Jackson?
Who knew D’Antoni was mildly funny?
With 19.9 seconds remaining and the San Antonio Spurs trailing the Los Angeles Lakers 82-81 in the fourth quarter on Tuesday, the Spurs didn’t draw up a play for Tony Parker or Tim Duncan. On this night in Los Angeles, the Spurs drew up a play for Danny Green who was being defended by the Lakers’ Kobe Bryant. With Bryant not playing Green closely, Green made him pay.
