Can we all just agree that basketball jerseys should be sleeveless? Last year, the NBA revealed short-sleeve jerseys for the All-Star Game in New Orleans. The skin-tight affairs resembled a sausage casing and weren’t a huge hit with players. Thankfully, for the 2015 All-Star Game in New York City, the NBA and Adidas went back to a more traditional look.
The top players from the Eastern and Western Conferences will take the court at Madison Square Garden on February 15 in jerseys with a clean, sleeveless design. The East jerseys are white with blue numbers, while the West jerseys are black with red numbers. Both jerseys feature five stars down the sides to represent the five boroughs of New York City, and each star has its own pattern that symbolizes a characteristic of the borough. The star for the Bronx, for example, is styled like a vinyl record in recognition of the BX being the birthplace of hip-hop.
The jerseys will range in price from $80-$110 and will be available at NBAStore.com starting in January.
