As we’ve come to expect in recent years, the NBA’s Christmas Day schedule once again was jam packed with a handful of marquee games showcasing the league’s best talents and brightest stars on a national TV stage.

We’ve gotten used to seeing signature stars like Kobe Bryant, Carmelo Anthony and LeBron James break out special edition colorways of their current sneakers, and this year, a huge shift took place. Nike and Adidas toned down their holiday themes, opting for just a simple white upper and accents of either gold or mint green to add some holiday flair.

Instead, all of the focus was on model debuts altogether, as LeBron, Melo and Kyrie Irving each unveiled the next editions of their signature lines. While images of the Kyrie 3 and Melo 13 had been floating around online for nearly a month, it was a pretty awesome moment for LeBron, as Nike Basketball released two images of the new LeBron 14 just before tipoff, and we otherwise got to see the 14th model on-foot as a first impression — a true rarity in the internet age.

Check out all of the best Kicks On Court from the five game Christmas Day schedule in action below, and let us know your favorites in the comments section below.
