To get fans in the mood for Christmas Day basketball, the NBA has teamed up with ESPN to create a commercial featuring Blake Griffin, Chris Paul, James Harden and Jason Kidd singing "Jingle Bells", featuring customized basketball-themed lyrics.
It's good to see Harden get into the holiday spirit, as he missed out on singing "I Have a Little Dreidel" with his Rockets teammates.

How good can James Harden be?credit: bleacherreport.com
In late October Houston Rockets GM Daryl Morey traded, then signed James Harden to a maximum contract. Given the 5 year $80 million deal, Morey thinks the bearded wonder has the capability to be a superstar. But will he be?
Tough call, but let’s try to project.
On Oklahoma City, Harden was the steadying force to Russell Westbrook’s...
LOS ANGELES -- This is what an 11-game winning streak feels like:
"Food tastes better, music sounds better, you sleep a little bit better, everything is a little bit better when you're winning," Chris Paul said Wednesday night. "We've just got to keep it going."
The Clippers are on a stupendous roll, one so special that team owner Donald Sterling felt...
Johnny Manziel finds out the perks of being a Heisman winner after going into the Houston Rockets locker room and meeting former Sixth Man of the Year James Harden. I guess being a 20 year old freshman at Texas A&M isn’t so bad after all.
Jason Kidd and Deron Williams both know what it’s like to play for Avery Johnson, and they both understand how it feels to not be fully comfortable playing for him. Earlier this week, Williams said he has not been the same player since joining the Brooklyn Nets and that he was far more comfortable in Jerry Sloan’s system with the Utah Jazz. Kidd, who had some disagreements with...
James Harden had 33 points and seven assists to lead the Houston Rockets to a 125-103 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday night.
Harden topped 20 points for the seventh straight game to send the 76ers to their fifth straight loss. He made 17 of 18 free throws, including six in the fourth quarter, as Houston improved to 9-2 in its last 11 home games.

Who had the New York Knicks on top of the Eastern Conference at 19-6 after 25 games? No one?
It is a pretty big shock.
This is a team that has failed to meet the potential of their talent for years, and now, all of a sudden, they look like they could compete for an NBA title. Have they finally discovered what it is going to take to win?
Carmelo Anthony is the league’s second...
I know what your thinking...we just posted a nasty tip dunk from Clippers center DeAndre Jordan but as the old saying goes, "The More The Merrier".
In the seconds quarter of Wednesday night's Clippers/Hornets game, watch as Chris Paul finds DeAndre on the alley-oop dunk over New Orleans rookie Austin Rivers:
HE CAN FLY
Normally, when we post an alley-oop dunk from the Los Angeles Clippers...it usually has Blake Griffin or DeAndre Jordan in it.This time however back-up guard Eric Bledsoe makes an appearance as he soars to collect this alley-oop from teammate Chris Paul:
The Rockets continue to believe that James Harden and Jeremy Lin will develop better chemistry over time.
Continuing with my theme of “Hey, here’s some good news, let’s talk about this!” that started with Andre Johnson’s incredibly kind effort and continued with Chris Paul’s equally generous charitable act, sports teams in every league except the one with a commissioner who is ruining Canada’s Christmas have been pitching in to help kids in their communities. Earlier this...
Usually it's Blake Griffin that benefits in lob city from the nice alley-oop skills of Chris Paul, but not this time. Eric Bledsoe threw down a huge alley-oop from Paul last night against the Sacramento Kings that would rival pretty much any Griffin dunk I've seen this year. Check out the huge jam below.
The Clippers won the game 97-85 over the Kings.
The only upside to a Mayan apocalypse going down at some point today would be the end of whoever keeps making athletes sing sports-related Christmas carols because they’re sports guys and it’s Christmas.Yesterday we shared with you the 12 Days Of MMA Christmas (“two black eyes!” etc.), and before that it was pro wrestlers singing WWE Jingle Bells. Somewhere in-between we...
