LOOK: NBA keeps Christmas 2016 jerseys simple but classy


Which team had the best jerseys for Christmas 2016?

MANILA, Philippines – There are only two kinds of fashion which roll around exclusively for Christmas. You could wear a fuzzy cardigan with snowflakes and reindeer on it. If you’re a hoops fan, the special Christmas NBA jerseys the league rolls out might be more your style.

This season’s yuletide outfits aren’t that much a departure from last year’s, featuring a similar festive, slanted script font across the front. This season the league served up 5 games, including a mouth-watering NBA Finals rematch between the Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors, giving the league 10 jerseys to advertise in front of a captive audience.

The Cavaliers beat the Warriors 109-108 the Celtics beat the Knicks 119-114; the Spurs beat the Bulls 119-100; the Lakers beat the Clippers 111-102; and the Thunder beat the Timberwolves 112-100.
