Dirk Nowitzki isn’t a fan of the NBA’s Christmas sleeved jerseys
LeBron James might not have a problem with the sleeved jerseys that the 10 NBA teams are wearing to play on Christmas Day, but one fellow former league MVP apparently shares the reservations of some of James' teammates on the Miami Heat:
Call me old school but these jerseys with sleeves are awful.....

Color me surprised that one of the greatest shooters in NBA history doesn't particularly appreciate the idea of having extra unnecessary stuff on his shoulders and arms. Or, y'know, the exceedingly questionable aesthetics that have multiple fans wondering if they're watching a pick-up game rather than the real thing. (The combined offensive ineffectiveness of the Brooklyn Nets and Chicago Bulls don't help matters much.)
Speaking of questionable aesthetics, you have to wonder what Dirk Nowitzki thinks about his former Dallas Mavericks teammate Jason Terry taking things up a notch in the high socks department for his Nets' matinee matchup with the Bulls. Way to do the Hamburglar proud, JET.
