The only thing that could make this better is Lamar Odom pulling off an over-the-head-while-sliding-back dribble, but he’s kind of busy relearning how to regular dribble so we can let that one go. Otherwise, I’m enjoying the NBA’s holiday ad, “BIG: Color,” which is due to start running tomorrow night and will coincide with the release of the one-color Winter Court jerseys that you’ll see on a bunch of teams this holiday season.

For a follow-up, I’m hoping the league calls back every NBA player who has ever had the word “dog” in their nickname — including Antoine Carr, Glenn Robinson and Jerome Williams, among others — and gets them to bark out “Jingle Bells.” It’s an idea that’s just crazy enough that it might work.
