A Traditional Christmas Look for NBA Teams in 2015

The NBA officially unveiled the special Adidas Christmas Day uniforms the ten participating teams will wear on the court this December 25th.

Uniforms are all in the dominant team colour only the Lakers and Spurs will be wearing white. Each jersey features the team name scripted diagonally in a traditional Minnesota Wild-esque font across the chest, player number below it to the left. Sticking with the traditional theme, the NBA logo appears on the back collar as if it were wax sealed, like an old Christmas card envelope. Fun idea.

The ten teams which will wear the special uniforms are the Chicago Bulls, Cleveland Cavaliers, Golden State Warriors, Houston Rockets, Los Angeles Clippers, Los Angeles Lakers, Miami Heat, New Orleans Pelicans, Oklahoma City Thunder, and San Antonio Spurs.

From the official adidas press release:

adidas and the NBA today unveiled the uniforms that all teams will wear during the league’s Christmas Day match-ups. Designed as part of the adidas NBA Season’s Greetings Collection, the uniforms continue the tradition of introducing new and unique elements each season. This year’s uniforms incorporate primary team colors and cream tones, while player names and numbers are showcased in holiday-style script and detailed with woven rows of stitching. A scarlet NBA seal is also displayed on the back of the jersey as a nod to holiday greeting cards.

The socks, Stance’s contribution to the on-court Christmas Day look, mirror the uniform’s design and feature classic holiday colours, winter-inspired imagery and pay homage to holiday sweaters.

As mentioned in the presser the teams are also wearing special Christmas-themed socks, you can get a better look in some of the photos below:
