The NBA Gets Sleeves for Christmas
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.

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:
