Hoops and hip-hop have been linked for years, but some NBA teams are taking it to an elevated level this year.

Not too long ago, we showed you a video of the Dallas Mavericks reinterpreting Kanye West's "Portrait of Power." Here, in honor of the holiday season, we find the Denver Nuggets trying their hand at Run DMC's "Christmas in Hollis."

If the rumors turn out to be true, and Nuggets' star Carmelo Anthony lands in New York or New Jersey soon, he may be just a subway ride away from being able to sing this in the streets of Hollis.

Man, some of these dudes really can't flow. That's alright, though, we're loving the effort.
