All around the world, millions of families are celebrating one of the best times of the year. It's a time for family, for giving, and for tradition.

Apparently, it's also the time for basketball.

To celebrate the Christmas season, American television host, and former NFL football player, Anthony "Spice" Adams was mixing in holiday giving with a bit of one-on-one. In the awesome segment, Adams challenges strangers to earn a $20 cash prize if they steal the ball from "Santa."

Judging from the footage, Adams is no scrub and has some pretty nasty handles. Admittedly, though, the whole thing is a bit ridiculous, and nobody's lives were radically changed as a result of the shenanigans. Still, it's hilarious to see, and probably twice as great to play.

Interestingly enough, we see a mix of people who actually managed to steal the ball and those who didn't. And don't worry, those who failed still got something -- an apparent participation medal for their "Jingle L."

Again, the whole thing is kind of ridiculous, but it probably made more than a few folks' days. Way to Spice Adams for being such a good sport.
