After all the presents are opened on Christmas Day, the avid basketball fan that wants to avoid the in-laws can park it in front of the TV for a quintuple-header of NBA games. But don’t be alarmed if the jerseys look a little different on December 25th.
On Monday, the NBA unveiled their special “BIG Color” uniforms that will debut this Christmas. They’re just one color with a text outline.
“We worked with Adidas to amplify our long-standing tradition of playing on Christmas Day,” said NBA Executive Vice President Global Merchandising Sal LaRocca. “BIG Color gives our players an enhanced look on the court and highlights one of the most visible dates during our season with a new and exciting range of products.”
The San Antonio Spurs don’t play on Christmas day, but they were one of five teams that were also part of the unveiling. Their jersey is all gray with black text. Check it out.
I honestly don’t know how I feel about these uniforms. I probably won’t be able to form a true opinion until I see them in action. My first impulse is that they’re too simple and won’t look as good as the designers think, but I definitely could be wrong.
After the Spurs already got some criticism for their new uniforms that look like practice jerseys, what do you think about the special “BIG Color” jerseys that they’ll be wearing sometime after Christmas? What about the other NBA teams? Is there a clear favorite? I think the Rockets get my vote.
What do you have to say Spurs fans? Will you be asking for one this Christmas?

The Spurs aren't immune to making coaching changes early in seasons, not that anyone really remembers or notices.
It's just the thought of San Antonio canning a coach now seems as foreign as the Spurs' internationally-laden roster. The NBA's ultimate model of consistency and stability doesn't do rash. The Spurs stay the course, cranking out essentially the same...
Right before he came to join the San Antonio Spurs, Nando De Colo did some final training with Franck Le Goff (assistant coach for French team JSF Nanterre) where Goff put De Colo through a battery of dribbling drills, and shooting drills.
In a previous video, Nando went though some dribbling routines where he showed off an impressive handle with the ball. In this latest video...
In the age of social media, the gap between NBA players and fans is bridged bringing fans an even closer look at their favorite athletes.
For San Antonio Spurs guard Manu Ginobili, that rings especially true since he has an active twitter and Facebook account and posts photos from several photo sharing sites. But while you may know what Ginobili is having for dinner or his excitement...

The San Antonio Spurs are sitting at 6-1, good enough for the second best record (percentage-wise) in the NBA. Once again, they’re shaking off all the haters who said they were too old, couldn’t compete with the Thunder or the Lakers and that their dynasty was finally headed down to the basement.
It’s definitely too early to start handing out championship rings, but the...
It’s that time of year again. It’s time for everybody to vote for their favorite players to represent their teams in the annual All-Star game. As usual, you can expect the voting to become a popularity contest, not really having anything to do with performance, but usually the best players end up making the roster in the end.
This year you can vote for four different San...
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.

It wasn't too long ago Hanga hit a last second shot for Manresa against Grand Canaria and it seems he did it again. At the end of the first quarter of a recent game, Hanga launched a half court shot and hit nothing but net. Check it out.
This must be ESPN's "Boom Goes The Dynamite" moment.
After the San Antonio Spurs' win over the Indiana Pacers earlier this month, ESPN broke down the game but apparently failed miserably.
From the get go of the highlight segment, ESPN anchor calls a play between Manu Ginobili and DeJuan Blair as Tim Duncan to Danny Green. Clearly it was wrong and that was...

The San Antonio Spurs (6-1) will take on the new-look Los Angeles Lakers (3-4) in Los Angeles who haven't gotten off to good start.

Every morning, we will give you five things from the night before in the NBA to start your day.
1: Green > Gasol?
The Spurs matchup with the Lakers came down to two deciding plays. A 48-minute game and rivalry came down to the very end. The way you would expect.
