Hot Or Not: 2014 NBA All Star Jerseys
Those aren’t t-shirts you see above, those are the jerseys that the NBA All Stars will be wearing at this year’s game.
Yes, they have sleeves.
For whatever reason, the NBA has been on a quest to put sleeves on jerseys. I don’t know about you, but sleeves on basketball jerseys look silly. At any rate, the 2014 NBA All Star jerseys have hints of New Orleans sprinkled on them as the game takes place at the home of the Pelicans.
“Designed by adidas, the uniforms are inspired by New Orleans’ rich and unique culture, featuring vibrant Mardi Gras colors and shiny brass and silver accents on a short-sleeved silhouette,” says the adidas website.
It is not known how long the NBA plans to continue beating us over the head with sleeved jerseys, but we’ll have to endure the All Star game at the very least.
“Each year, we look forward to developing a unique on-court look for the players that pays homage to the host city and adds to the excitement of this highly anticipated game,” said adidas head of global basketball sports marketing Chris Grancio in a release. “This year’s All-Star collection reflects New Orleans’ festive musical history while also providing the premium performance elements that NBA athletes have grown accustomed to.”
