Christmas on the Hardwood: Instagrams

Merry Christmas to all the listeners & readers of #believethehype! Whilst it is now Boxing Day in Australia, it always feels like it’s still Christmas when you turn on ESPN or NBA League Pass to watch the NBA games!

But… Not every NBA player is on the floor right now, so… what are they up to? Let’s see how some of them are spending their holidays…

They said it couldn’t be done… But… Spencer Hawes became the first professional athlete to finally complete the “Silicon Valley Trifecta” of a Christmas Sweater, 80s haircut & a Segway… You’re move Zuckerberg.


This is Injured New York Knicks star Amare Stoudemire’s first Christmas with the family in a long time… Not playing on Christmas Day’s got it’s perks as Stat could finally take up his old pal Goofy’s long-standing offer to come & spend Christmas with him in Cartoonland.


Chris Bosh is using his new found global fame as NBA Champion to finally complete his lifelong dream… Releasing a Christmas Themed Hip-Hop Album. He’s finally settled on this photo for the cover…




“Happy Wife… Happy Life” is Kobe Bryant’s new life motto… Especailly after forking out 5 figures for Vanessa to have a hand made Gucci velvet robe for this Christmas Photo…


This morning Dwyane Wade was snapped by the Paparazzi outside of Chris Bosh’s recording studio… Rumor has it he appears on track 6 – “Swaggy Claus is coming to town”


And… Finally… After years of doubt, wonder & personal reflection… Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s finally going to try & find the real meaning of Christmas… Who better to help him on his journey than Bond, James Bond.


Merry Christmas everyone! Enjoy the Games, dinner, family & be safe…
