Holiday Greetings from the NBA's All-Stars

0 of 9

    It's nearly impossible for NBA teams to put out holiday cards this year, what with the lockout still fresh in our minds and players being shipped all around the country (*express delivery in time for Christmas!).

    Instead, as is the case with most things NBA, the players put out their own cards. We have been granted an exclusive look at some holiday cards for some of the best players in basketball. 

    Much like our holiday cards for NFL teams, these are totally real and in no way Photoshops we made up on our own. Nope. Not a chance.

    Happy Holidays, NBA!

LeBron James

    Presented without comment.

Dirk Nowitzki

    A blessed Christmas from the star of the NBA Champs.

    (Of course Mark Cuban would find a way to sidle in.)

Chris Paul

    You don that new apparel, CP3. You don it good.

Dwight Howard

    Brooklyn's not so bad, actually. Of course, the mouse in Orlando has nothing on the rats in Coney Island.

Kobe Bryant

5 of 9

    This is from the Derek Jeter Christmas Card Collection.

Shaquille O'Neal

    ...or a lot.

Greg Oden and Brandon Roy

    Too soon?

    Seriously, never has such a great fanbase had to deal with such terrible luck. Oh, the players, too.

Kevin Durant

    I cannot think of another absolute superstar in a small market, unless you count Dwight Howard, who will probably be gone before you read this.

    Should we just expect Durant to demand a trade the Bulls by April?

David Stern

    Technically it's six and a half days, right?
