The NBA and adidas gave us a look at some of the new uniforms that will be unveiled on Christmas Day, and if you like solid colors, then these are for you.

The so-called BIG Color jerseys will be worn by all 10 teams playing on the holiday, and they’re part of an entire Winter Court Collection.

From the official release:

“The uniforms feature a monochromatic color scheme with solid color team logos, names, and numbers framed with minimal accent color and a shimmer finish for a bold statement.

“We worked with adidas to amplify our long-standing tradition of playing on Christmas Day,” said NBA Executive Vice President Global Merchandising Sal LaRocca. “BIG Color gives our players an enhanced look on the court and highlights one of the most visible dates during our season with a new and exciting range of products.”

“BIG Color jerseys are part of the adidas Winter Court Collection, which also includes new warm-up jackets and shooting shirts. The jackets feature a tricot liner for comfort and team accent colors around the team logo and name while the shooting shirt features the team practice logo on the front in accent colors. Fans can purchase the Winter Court Collection for all NBA teams at, the NBA Store on Fifth Avenue in New York City, Champs Sports, and team retailers on Nov. 15.”

Check out some of the photos below, and let us know what you think. Personally I like the Lakers snow-white edition — even though it’s always right around 75 degrees and sunny on Christmas Day in Los Angeles.

    Not feeling these. They’re too minimal, they look more like practice pinnies than real jerseys.

      i like the lakers one. it’s clean.

        yeah but the lakers regular unis are classic, no point to wear anything else

      I agree with both of you. The Lakers whites actually are passable for me, but the rest- Heat and Knicks especially- look like practive jerseys. If I were wanting a jersey for X-mas, I’d hope Santa had the good sense to leave these for the Walmart clearance racks.

        It’s one way to identify someone’s origin without them saying it. Like “centre” instead of center. Don’t apologize (apologise), it’s what makes the English language colourful and interesting.

    As always the Spurs are left out of the headline.
