We’re so torn over this. On one hand, we have the god-awful sleeved jerseys that will be prominently featured over the course of five NBA games on Christmas Day. On the other hand, we have Derrick Rose, Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, James Harden, Steve Nash (R.I.P.) and LeBron James draining threes (and one emphatic dunk) to the tune of “Jingle Bells”. Final verdict: this ad spot gets a “pretty cool” from us, even with the sartorial choices.
Update: If you’d like to see how it all came together, the NBA posted a “making of” video.
