NBA's 2016 Christmas Day jerseys revealed, what do you think of Celtics?
Although not officially released, Paul Lukas of ESPN's Uni Watch has a sneak peak at the NBA's Christmas Day jerseys for the upcoming 2016-17 season. Obviously the league's schedule is not out yet--the fact that the Celtics have a Christmas jersey does not mean they will be playing on December 25. There are mock ups for 28 of the 30 NBA clubs, with only the Jazz and Kings missing due to offseason uniform changes.
The style is very similar to last year, which Lukas notes could be a sign of Adidas mailing it in because their contract is up at the end of the season (Nike will take over in 2017-18). On the other hand, the 2015 Christmas jerseys were the best in quite some time, so Adidas may just be sticking with a winning idea. The most notable change for the C's is that it reads "Boston" on the front instead of "Celtics."
Robert Parish would be proud.
