With Thursday (Feb. 19) being the beginning of the Chinese New Year (Year of the Goat), the NBA celebrates with a star-studded TV commercial, dubbed "Surprise Door."

The clip features the Lakers' Jeremy Lin and the Rockets' James Harden paying a surprise visit to a Chinese family to share in the holiday festivities and watch an NBA game together... before Warriors star Steph Curry and the Heat's Dwyane Wade show up.

The spot will premiere in the U.S. on Friday (Feb. 20) during the Spurs vs. Warriors game on ESPN.
