Normally, we’d make a little joke here about how the Minnesota Timberwolves players couldn’t do this, but if you’ve seen the team play this year, you know they probably could.
The NBA today released its annual commercial promoting Christmas Day games this year by having players Kevin Durant, Derrick Rose, James Harden, Steve Nash and Stephen Curry playing “Jingle Bells” by successfully making baskets. (Note: No Kevin Love because it’s against NBA rules to feature the Minnesota Timberwolves)
Now the disappointing part. Other than the ball going in the hoop, it’s fake.
