Basketball junkies will receive the ultimate gift on Christmas Day when they get to watch five NBA matchups (Celtics vs. Knicks, Warriors vs. Cavaliers, Bulls vs. Spurs, Timberwolves vs. Thunder, and Clippers vs. Lakers) without needing an NBA TV League Pass subscription to see all this go down. The Portland Trailblazers have this weekend off, so their MVPs Damien Lillard and C.J. McCollum decided to show their holiday spirit by serenading their fans with a Christmas carol.
In the clip above, the Blazers' All-Star point guard Lillard and his 2015 Most Improved Player teammate performed a "Jingle Bells" duet on McCollum's IG account. Lillard, known as this NBA era's most revered hip-hop artist, added his beatbox skills to back McCollum singing the lyrics to their remixed version of the song.
McCollum also sang a rendition of "Jingle Bells" on his Snapchat account. He put the caption "Haters say I will use Autotune" to probably make his followers acknowledge his vocal range skills without relying on it.
hopefully won't be quitting their day jobs to pursue a full-time music career anytime soon. But we can appreciate their holiday cheer during the most wonderful time of the year.
