James Harden joins Jeremy Lin, and for some reason, Benny the Bull to celebrate Chinese Lunar New Year with this Chinese family that apparently lives in a model home in the Houston suburbs.
We’re expecting the usual Chinese New Year warm-up tops, but this year the Houston Rockets and Golden State Warriors have revealed new commemorative jerseys for the Year of the Goat. Presumably, the Warriors jerseys cater to the large Asian American fan base in The Bay Area, and the Rockets to their fan base in China.

Again, the NBA is straight up dedicating this to the Chinese people, instead of going with the broader “Lunar New Year.” Sure, we know all the practical reasons for it.
No Lakers jerseys though? Your spokesman doesn’t get one?
