The tradition continues for the Los Angeles Lakers with Kobe Bryant and company set to play on Christmas Day yet again. This time around, the Lakers will hit the road on Dec. 25 to face off against the Chicago Bulls.

With more than a month to go before the Lakers head to the Windy City, the NBA has unveiled what the Christmas Day jerseys will look like for all 10 teams:

Last year, the NBA went with sleeved jerseys that not many were fond of. This year, the league is going with a different look. The first name of the player will be on the back while the logo of the team will be on the front right above the number.

Pau Gasol will face the Lakers on Christmas Day for the first time since leaving Los Angeles in free agency this past summer. Gasol has played well in his new surroundings and will almost certainly be dealing with a lot of emotions taking on his old team.

Gasol signed a three-year deal with the Bulls back in July. The two-time NBA champion will return to the Staples Center on Jan. 29.
