Originally written November 14, 2012 on A Glam Slam:
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:
