8 Asians

Chinese New Year is coming a little early this year, on Saturday, January 28th, which will be the Year of the Rooster. Like last year, the NBA recently released a new commercial that features Brooklyn Nets guard Jeremy Lin and Golden State Warriorsguard Stephen Curry wishing you a happy Year of the Rooster:

“Red envelopes aren’t the only things that will be full of surprises this Chinese New Year. Make room for the NBA as Steph Curry, James Harden, Jeremy Lin, and Anthony Davis usher in the Year of the Rooster. Enjoy games from January 27th through February 12th to celebrate the season.”


For those of you who don’t know, according to Wikipedia:

“… a red envelope, red packet, lai see (Cantonese), ang pao (Hokkien) or hong bao (Mandarin) is a monetary gift which is given during holidays or special occasions such as weddings, graduation or the birth of a baby. Outside of China, similar customs exist across parts of South East Asia and many other countries with a sizable ethnic Chinese population.”

For those who celebrate, have a Happy Chinese New Year!
