INDIANAPOLIS — St. Croix-raised pro basketball player Rakeem Christmas was part of the NBA’s rookie orientation over the weekend. That process included photos — lots of photos — as well as videos to assert the playful side of each NBA prospect.
Here’s Christmas, whose embryonic NBA career has already included two trades (Minnesota to Cleveland; Cleveland to Indiana). This is what he looks like in his latest NBA attire.
Christmas participated in the NBA Rookie Dunk contest sponsored by Panini America. (Love the happy feet, post-dunk celebration.)
And Christmas seems to be fitting in just fine with new Pacers’ teammates (and fellow rookies) Myles Turner and Joe Young.
