The NBA's Christmas Day uniforms have a history of being, well, not so great. From sleeves to first names on the back, the league's desire to sell as many jerseys as possible by making such unique designs has generally been thought of as a failure on the eye test.
Which is what makes this year's design, revealed by Uni Watch on Wednesday, so refreshing.
The NBA kept the core designs for each of the 30 teams, then added a Christmas card-type font in cream on the fronts of the jersey. The numbers are off-centered, also in cream with a uniformed font. For the Bulls, their home shorts are standard, with cream coloring replacing white space on them.

An added twist, and you can read more about them in Paul Lukas' write-up, is that the NBA logo will appear molded in red wax. Lukas also adds the font and numbering will include “glazed sugar ornamental shiny surfaces," which doesn't sound great. But it'll be hard to mess up these jerseys.
The Bulls are 12-7 all-time on Christmas Day, and they've played five straight years on the holiday. They're 3-2 in that span, including a 20-point victory over the Lakers this season.
Who's wearing those jerseys and who's coaching the Bulls while they wear those uniforms remains to be seen, but they're great. Take a look at the jerseys in the screengrabs below, courtesy of Uni Watch.
