We're still a couple weeks away from Thanksgiving, but people are already getting ready for Christmas — even in the NBA! Today, the league unveiled the special jerseys that the 10 teams playing on Christmas Day will wear for in those games. (That's Derrick Rose at the top of the post modeling the Bulls' Christmas jersey.)

Dubbed the "BIG Logo" uniform by adidas, for obvious reasons, the thing a lot of people will focus on is the sleeves. A few teams have already incorporated sleeves into third jerseys, but this is the widest use of the sleeved basketball jersey in the NBA to date. When it comes to basketball sleeves, it seems most people love them or hate them.

Take a look at the other Christmas Day jerseys and let us know what you think of them:

Bulls have the best SwaggOut

My Dad and I thought the Christmas uniforms looked like pajamas! I laughed so hard at that joke! We agreed they look weird. You got to admit... they look like pajamas

In my opinion the new Christmas day uniforms look acceptable. The logo is a good average size. Also, I really like how the number is on the side of their sleeve. Although the uniform jerseys are V-neck, I prefer them to be crew neck. Finally, I think the material of the uniform makes them seem like pajamas. Overall these Christmas day uniforms are all right.

I dont like em. I like the short sleeves but the big logo is stupid

they look wierd
