The NBA has always had plenty of Christmas spirit and that was evidenced once again by the debut of its new commercial.
The 30-second spot, featuring NBA stars Dwight Howard, Dwyane Wade, Carmelo Anthony, Russell Westbrook and Joe Johnson recreating the tune to “Carol of the Bells” by dribbling basketballs, has already been viewed more than four million times on YouTube. The commercial shows off, not only the impressive rhythmic skills of the players, but also the new uniforms they will wear for the Christmas Day games.
Here is another look at those jerseys, which are known as BIG Color and are of course, available at the NBA’s online store.
