This Holiday season, Jae Crowder reached out to us about doing something unique and personal for his teammates in the spirit of giving. As you can imagine, the NBA is a very personal league in that the relationship between the players themselves is tight-knit. The teams consist of no more than 16 players, These men spend upwards of 60 hours a week together, eating, traveling, practicing, among many other things. After a few hours of recon and multiple conversations with Jae, we gathered enough information on each player to begin the first draft of designs. With some edits and small detail changes on certain pairs, we presented Jae with the finalized design for each player and he loved them. Check out the designs below
