How NBA Players Are Getting In The Holiday Spirit


Year-end festivities are just around the corner, and the pros are preparing in fitting fashion. Some are decorating, others are spending time with the fam and many are finding ways to give back in the spirit of the season. Herein, we found out what some basketball players are doing during the last few days before Christmas.


Nick Young
It looks like Christmas came early for Nick Young. No, there’s no snow in L.A.–Iggy Azalea just bought him a brand new ride to mark the occasion. A clearly enthused Swaggy P was reportedly seen taking the car for a cruise. Meanwhile, Iggy tweeted, “also i just want to say, where the f— is my man!? lol. i gave him a car and i haven’t seen him since all day. hahahaha. rude ass.” Looks like Young could use a few pointers.


Chris Bosh
It wouldn’t be a special occasion without the Bosh family’s awkward holiday photos. (Remember Thanksgiving?) Here, we see Chris and his wife, Adrienne, posing by holiday decorations.


Dwyane Wade
According to his Instagram post, Dwyane Wade spent part of his run-up to Christmas reading How the Grinch Stole Christmas to young children. He did it as part of the Wade’s World Foundation’s “Three Under The Tree” campaign. (And yes, that’s the Grinch photobombing him in the back)


Ryan Anderson
Ryan Anderson apparently went to visit Santa Claus. “I know him… I know him!” he excitedly wrote on Instagram. We thought about breaking it to him, but the guy was just so happy to meet old St. Nick. We just couldn’t.


Ronny Turiaf
Like many NBA players, Ronny Turiaf decided to give back this holidays. This year, he helped collect toy donations for kids.


Mike Miller
Mike Miller spent some of his pre-season free time to shill last-minute gifts to his followers, which, if you think about it, is a fairly accurate definition of what the holidays are like these days. How very contemporary of him.


Kevin Love

In what was probably this year’s most touching pre-Christmas moment, Kevin Love dedicated the tree in his family’s home to his grandmother. His gram passed away a year ago, and never missed one of his games.
