For holiday lovers, Christmas usually means a diet day off and unwrapping presents, but for NBA stans, Dec. 25 equals basketball game-binging.

To promote the forthcoming Christmas Day showdowns, NBA stars like Los Angeles Clippers' Blake Griffin, Chicago Bulls' Dwyane Wade, New York Knicks' Carmelo Anthony and Cleveland Cavaliers' Kevin Love, Minnesota Timberwolves' Zach LaVine, Oklahoma City Thunder’s Victor Oladipo, and Los Angeles Lakers’ D’Angelo Russell to remix Andy Williams' 1963 staple "It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year" into the swoosh-friendly "Dunktastic Time of the Year."

In the spot, Griffin appears in his Santa suit beside a white grand piano as Love pours up the eggnog before nailing a behind-the-back pass to D-Wade, who rocks his holiday sweater alongside Melo. Green handles Christmas light duty as Russell makes snow angels with the Spurs mascot before LaVine places a shiny star atop a tree and Oladipo leads a chorus of jersey-clad fans in singing the carol while holding a wrapped basketball.
