FIRST LOOK: The 2016 Christmas Day uniform the Nuggets won't get to wear

The 2016 Christmas Day uniforms have leaked.

The uniforms, which bear a striking resemblance to last year’s edition are pretty basic but give off a crisp and clean look.

However, it’s doubtful the Nuggets will ever get to don these Christmas Day threads as it’s unlikely they’ll be tabbed on the holiday schedule in 2016. The league usually reserves those desirable Christmas Day nationally televised games for larger markets and playoff contenders.

ESPN.com’s Paul Lukas, who posted this year’s designs thinks that the reason they’re so similar to last year’s is because of Adidas’ contract with the league which runs out after next season.

From Lukas:

2016-17 will be Adidas’ final season outfitting the NBA, with Nike slated to take over the league’s uniform contract in 2017-18. Adidas’ lame duck status may explain why it’s going with the same Christmas designs. It’s unclear what Nike’s plans are for the annual Christmas promotion.

Hopefully these jerseys will be available for sale at some point down the road.
