The NBA and Adidas (the league’s official on-court apparel partner) unveiled special “BIG Color” team uniforms on Monday (November 12), celebrating 65 years of Christmas Day games.
“I grew up watching games on Christmas Day and it’s a huge honor to have your team play in front of millions around the world,” said Los Angeles Lakers star, Dwight Howard. “I’m excited to wear these ‘BIG Color’ uniforms that bring style and flare to the court and represent my team!”
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,” said the league in a press release.
“We worked with Adidas to amplify our long-standing tradition of playing on Christmas Day,” said Sal LaRocca, NBA Executive VP Global Merchandising. “‘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.
The Adidas NBA Winter Court Collection drops Thursday (November 15), and will be available at the NBA Store on Fifth Avenue in NYC, Champs Sports, team retailers, and NBAStore.com.
