What Do You Think About The Christmas Day Jerseys That NBA Teams Are Going To Wear This Year?

We know what you’re probably thinking right now: “Why in the world is Dr. Jay’s Live writing about the NBA‘s Christmas Day uniforms in the middle of July? There are still five months until Christmas! So what gives?” But the truth of the matter is that Christmas will be here before you know it. With the NFL preseason set to kick off in a couple weeks and then the NBA preseason set to start a relatively short time after that, the 2014-15 NBA season will be here before you know it! And the Christmas Day games are typically some of the biggest games of the entire season for the NBA, so it’s never too early to start talking about them.

We learned this recently when the website Uni Watch unveiled the Christmas Day jerseys that a handful of NBA teams will wear this season. The photos of the jerseys were huge news because, as you’ll notice, they don’t have sleeves like last year’s Christmas Day jerseys had. And that makes a lot of people out there happy, specifically the players who are going to wear the jerseys and the fans who snatch them up every year. Most people hated to see the sleeved Christmas Day jerseys in 2013, so it’s nice to see that the NBA and adidas have listened carefully and done away with the sleeves.

That isn’t the only change that adidas has made to the jerseys, either. In addition to taking away the sleeves, they have also moved the names of this year’s jerseys underneath the numbers on the back and made them players’ first names as opposed to last names. So you won’t see “JAMES” and “BRYANT” on the Christmas Day jerseys; you’ll see “LEBRON” and “KOBE.” And while the jury is still out on how people feel about that specific change, we think that it’ll definitely help improve sales. People will snatch up jerseys with “LEBRON” and “KOBE” on them in droves when they’re released later this year.

Outside of those two changes, though, this year’s Christmas Day jerseys look pretty normal. But what do you think about what adidas has done with them? Are you going to buy one, or do you wish adidas had done something different to them? Let us know below.
