NBA stars Stephen Curry, James Harden, Jeremy Lin, and Anthony Davis are celebrating the Chinese New Year in a new commercial.
The ad is titled Secret Envelope, and features a grandfather who gives his young son a red envelope, containing mini paper cartoons of Curry, Harden, Lin, and Davis.
The gifting of red envelopes is a Chinese New Year tradition.
The envelopes usually contain money, but Chinese fans surely wouldn’t mind finding their favorite NBA stars inside.

The Warriors, Rockets, Raptors and Wizards will also wear special Chinese New Year uniforms.
Limited Kids Matt Darr Jersey But Davis has had a different kind of year. For one thing, he has had to take on a much bigger role because of another injury-ravaged season in New Orleans, in which the second- and third-best players on the roster (Jrue Holiday and Tyreke Evans) have missed significant time. Davis has averaged 29.3 points, 12.3 rebounds and 2.6 blocks this season, still a great finisher in the lane but one who is having a great year as a midrange shooter.
Davis suffered an injury after a fall in the Pelicans’ loss to Indiana on Monday, but before that, he had been contributing to a New Orleans team that had begun to turn things around since getting healthy: Davis averaged 28.7 points and 15.6 rebounds, shooting 51.1 percent, for a team that had gone 7-5 in its previous 12 games.
