New York Knicks Christmas Jerseys: Why Team Has Best Unis for Holiday

The New York Knicks are taking on the Los Angeles Lakers on Christmas Day in what is sure to be a great matchup.

As is customary for Christmas Day, the Knicks will be unveiling a brand new, special-edition jersey. You can see it above.

The NBA as a whole went with a minimalist look, going with monochromatic colors. The NBA was decidedly not flashy. As you can see, it's sleek and simple.

The Knicks went with an all-orange look, which makes them stand out amongst the dull jerseys featured by San Antonio, Los Angeles and Brooklyn.

While the Pacers feature a striking all-yellow look, it's still yellow, which makes them look like a big Sun. Perhaps that will blind the Bulls on Wednesday night in Indiana.

The Knicks feature a classic orange, but it is not overwhelming. It's overbearing and is duller than a glass of orange juice. If anything, it is more of a pumpkin-pie orange, which makes everybody happy. The blue outline around the numbers and lettering brings it all together.

Additionally, the Knicks' opponent, the Lakers, are wearing all-white, which will make them nearly invisible to the millions watching on television. 

You don't win fashion awards in the NBA, but if you did, the Knicks new unis would certainly be nominated. Based on the uninspiring colors of their NBA brethren, the Knicks would probably win it too.
