NBA/Adidas BIG COLOR Uniforms

Alternate jerseys to be worn for Christmas Day games

By

The NBA and Adidas will celebrate Christmas with a new line of monochromatic uniforms, the "BIG COLOR" line.

The ten teams playing on Christmas Day - the Celtics and Nets, Knicks and Lakers, Thunder and Heat, Rockets and Bulls and the Nuggets and Clippers - the will wear the new uniforms for the league's first major television event of the 2012-13 season.

The uniforms are mostly monochromatic, with accent colors used only to frame the uniform numbers and a "shimmer finish". I suspect they'll look terrific on HDTV... but if you're watching the games on an older television at grandma's house, you might have a hard time making out the numbers.

The jerseys are part of Adidas' Winter Court Collection, which will be available at NBA.com and sporting goods retailers starting on November 15. (Just in time for Christmas, eh?)
