What Happens When Some of the NBA’s Best Celebrate the Holidays?

By Kiran Aditham 

As part of Goodby Silverstein & Partners’ ongoing “BIG” work for the NBA, we leave your this Turkey Day with this double-dribble-galore tune brought to you by Dwyane Wade, Dwight Howard, Carmelo Anthony and Russell Westbrook among others to herald the Association’s Christmas uniforms. We need not explain more, but we with you a Happy Thanksgiving in the process. Let’s just hope there are no David Stern fines to be levied. You, like us, are hopefully looking forward to the NBA Finals matchup between the Heat and Thunder come Xmas. Credits after the jump.
