Clippers' Blake Griffin and Chris Paul Win Ugly Christmas Sweaters Award

Gabe ZaldivarPop Culture Lead WriterDecember 26, 2012

With straight faces the L.A. Clippers took to the postgame podium, armed with honest answers and the ugliest Christmas sweaters we have ever seen. 

We certainly hope that last week was one for the record books, filled with good cheer and a healthy dollop of holiday tackiness. Any amount of sartorial silliness is warranted at this time of year, so the Clippers did things right on Christmas evening. 

Stars Blake Griffin and Chris Paul wore straight faces and answered questions as if they mattered, as seen here in a Dan Woike tweet from Tuesday night.

Merry Christmas from @blakegriffin and @cp3

Other times, they broke character and straight into smiles as seen here in an Instagram from J.A. Adande, following a 112-100 victory over the Nuggets. 

Really, there was good reason to bust out a healthy amount of awful and throw it on, because the Clippers extended their winning streak to 14, and, well, it was Christmas. 

Not that theirs were the only of ugly sweaters seen on a raucous night in the NBA. Jalen Rose and Bill Simmons got into the action by showing us these delicious duds. 

While those are certainly awful, they are beaten by the red-hot Clippers who can do no wrong on the court right now.

The NBA had a huge day on Christmas, with a full complement of mostly competitive games, but the story continues to be some tacky outfits worn at the end of the night. 


Hit me up on Twitter for more holiday hilarity.
