Webster serenades camera with Christmas tunes

(Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports)

The NBA on Christmas Day is about a great many things, including promoting the league brand with five games and stars like LeBron James and Kevin Durant.

In 2013, it was also about showing off a sleeved-jersey look that, well, let's just say received a mixed reception from those on Twitter and those actually wearing the gear. I say because while my Twitter searched revealed some fans giving a thumbs up, 

* Mavericks star Dirk Nowitzki, not a fan

* Per usual, our own Michael Jenkins found humor in the fashion call

* At the time of posting I didn't notice any current Wizards making reference to the sleeved look, but a former Wizard playing on Christmas reportedly said stuff.

Others, just focused on the basketball. In the case of the early games, that doesn't seem wise.
