NBA Launches Hilarious Holiday Commercial for Its Christmas Day Games (Video)


We all know that the NBA season really doesn’t start until Christmas Day. Sure, there are about 30 games played by each team prior to Xmas, and the records sure count, but attention doesn’t really turn to the league until the Christmas Day games are played.

So it’s understandable that the league would treat the slate of games like a season premiere, complete with a goofy trailer featuring its biggest stars in a Christmas setting.

I don’t know if I agree with the tagline, “It’s the most dunktastic time of the year,” but the ad seems to own up to the fact that the tagline is just terrible, so we can let it slide.

What does dunktastic even mean? That’s the best they could do?

(Still a pretty great commercial, though, if you can relax and just go with it.)
