Kobe morphs into Grinch in funny ‘Twas The Night Before Swishmas’ video

Ho, Ho, Hoops! Check out this holiday video from our friends at The Kicker set to prime any and all NBA fans, naughty and nice, for Christmas basketball:

The five-game Christmas slate features some exciting matchups including a NBA Finals rematch when the Cavaliers visit the Warriors (5 p.m. ET).

Actor/writer Rob King, who may or may not be Tony Parker’s long-lost relative, narrates. Naturally, Kobe is the Grinch and Tim Duncan is Santa Claus.

"Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good Dwight."
