2011 was quite a year for Jordan Brand’s three signature athletes. Carmelo Anthony went from West to East in a trade that sent him packing to New York City. Then, Dwyane Wade helped the Heat capture the Eastern Conference Championship and achieved his second NBA Finals appearance. Finally, Chris Paul was involved in another blockbuster trade that joined him with Los Angeles’ rising superstar Blake Griffin. While it may have been a hectic year for Jordan Brand, the Christmas holiday is a day or reflection (or for the three superstars, their 2011-12 NBA season debut). Releasing on Christmas Day is the Jordan Brand Christmas 2011 Pack, featuring the Jordan Melo M8 in Clover Green and Total Orange and the Jordan Fly Wade 2 in a tonal red. Missing in action is the Jordan CP3.V, which will debut in early January, but you’ll still see the Jordan CP3.V ‘Christmas’ during this Sunday’s games. Watch them in action on Christmas Day as all three Jordan Brand athletes will take the court in a much-anticipated opening tip-off of the season, and don’t forget to cop the Melos and Wades midnight at Nikestore on Christmas Day.
