NBA Christmas Day Schedule … and NBA Superstars Singing ‘Jingle Bells’

Before we get to the NBA’s Christmas Day schedule for 2012, a quick little something for anyone who might at all be struggling to get into the Christmas spirit.

Check out this video of some of the NBA’s finest singing a basketball rendition of “Jingle Bells.”

This video should serve as a great reminder of the intriguing slate of action that will take place on Christmas day. And trust me, “intriguing” may be an understatement. There will be constant action from noon until about 1 A.M. Eastern time.

Stars that fans will be able to watch will include Rajon Rondo, Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, Deron Williams, Carmelo Anthony, Kobe Bryant, Dwight Howard, Russell Westbrook, Kevin Durant, LeBron James, Chris Bosh, Dwyane Wade, James Harden, Blake Griffin, Chris Paul, and possibly Steve Nash.

That means in one day, you’ll get to watch teams that have combined to go 155-82, or in other words, teams that in total have won just under 2/3 of their games (as of December 20)! Not to mention, you’ll get to see 7 of the league’s top 8 scorers (Bryant, Anthony, Durant, Harden, James, Westbrook, Pierce).

So, if you’re not a huge NBA fan, I advise you to tune in on Christmas day. Give it the shot it deserves.

With the whole country watching, you know each and every one of the aforementioned superstars will want to impress, so it should be an extremely competitive and exciting day of basketball.
