NBA and adidas unveil 2015 All-Star Uniforms

adidas NBA All-Star Group, Sq

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — Today in New York City, the home of the 2015 NBA All-Star Weekend, the NBA and adidas unveiled a first look at the uniforms for the 64th annual All-Star Game, to be played on February 15, 2015. To see more images, check the gallery at the bottom.

But first, a bit more on the design of the uniforms, via a press release from the NBA and adidas…

The jerseys feature a side panel of five stars, each representing New York City’s five boroughs with a unique pattern:

*Queens: a pattern inspired by the stainless steel orbit rings of the borough’s iconic Unisphere that was built for the 1964 World’s Fair at Flushing Meadows – Corona Park

*Staten Island: a wave pattern to signify its surrounding waters

* Manhattan: a taxi-cab checkered pattern represents the pace and energy of the world’s most cosmopolitan city

*The Bronx: a vinyl record pattern to pay homage to the birthplace of hip-hop and the rich musical legacy of New York City

* Brooklyn: a brick pattern inspired by the iconic brownstone houses and buildings that make up the neighborhoods of the city’s most populous borough

“The NBA All-Star Game is a celebration of the host city and basketball culture, and this year we created our most detailed and sophisticated uniforms to date that pay homage to New York and All-Star weekend,” said Chris Grancio, adidas global basketball general manager. “We took inspiration from all five boroughs, in addition to the rich basketball and cultural heritage of the city, to provide a memorable collection for players and fans.”

The Eastern Conference NBA All-Star uniforms feature black name lettering and blue numbers while the Western Conference uniforms bear white name lettering and red numbers. Herringbone detail on the East/West patch and jock tags pays homage to the Barclays Center court, and the New York Knicks font is used for player name and number. For the first-time in an NBA All-Star Game, player first and last names are featured on the back of the jersey.

The All-Stars will wear black, gray and white fitted warm-ups that feature satin accents and military-style star patches to celebrate the number of NBA All-Star appearances for each player. Each player’s jacket will be customized with patches to represent the game’s top individual accolades including NBA Most Valuable Player, NBA Rookie of the Year, NBA All-Star Game MVP and NBA Championships.

The on-court warm-ups also include a three-quarter-sleeve shooting shirt and tapered pant. NBA All-Star jerseys ($80 – $110) will be available on NBAStore.com and NBA Store on Fifth Avenue in January in addition to a full range of NBA All-Star apparel from adidas including adult and youth t-shirts ($22 – $30), track jackets ($80 – $250) and headwear ($16 – $26). Select NBA All-Star merchandise will also be available internationally on NBAStore.eu, NBAStore.cn, NBA.JD.com and LojaNBA.com.

  2. kendall says:

    Now thats what i call a jersey! Specially after those ugly, horrible t-shirts from 2014

  3. Ian says:

    looks like a hodgepodge of the Knicks, Brooklyn Nets, and old New York/New Jersey Nets jerseys. Not bad, better than last year’s jerseys

  4. keith says:

    simple like old school

  5. TTKIN says:

    The jerseys, in my opinion, suck. They look like the jerseys of created teams on NBA Live. That being said, The jerseys last yr should’ve been used as toilet paper, not as uniforms in an all star game.

    The NBA needs to get rid of all sleeved jerseys asap.

  6. SANDI RIJEKA says:

    WOW now this is something, best all-star uniforms in a decade imo

  7. Mike says:

    I really hope they read this and change the staten island symbol…they do realize thousands of peoples homes were destroyed by a wave when hurricane sandy hit staten island…this might be kind of insensitive to choose that symbol to represent staten island just saying…

    • Lance Evans says:

      Why do people like you always complain? Geez man get over it, they are good looking jerseys.

    • Dave says:

      So what, they should have a debris field as the symbol? If you cant come up with a replacement suggestion then there is no point in saying that the current one shouldnt be used.

  8. SomewhatGuy says:

    All-Star game MVP doesn’t mean anything anymore. The players clearly don’t take the All-Star game seriously. The NBA should do the same thing MLB does and give the NBA finals home court advantage to the league that wins the All-Star game.

    • Dave says:

      Nope, terrible suggestion, because then the team that works all season of get the best record in the league has worked for nothing if the other conference wins the All-Star game. Especially if that same team they face in the finals ended up finishing lower than top seed in that conference.

  9. Gabi Op. says:

    GOOD JOB ! Simple like old school ! Finally good all-star uniforms ! NBA should keep “new-old school” uniforms !

  10. matt coombes says:

    Thanks NBA and Adidas, I was going to get these, as My Favorite Team is hosting All-Star Saturday, but they are so boring and bad, that now I can save my Money. These are just as bad, if not worse than the Christmas Jerseys, Stop making crap for jerseys and start making something good.

  11. keon says:

    Horrible there was no creavity involved, and if allstar weekend is in Brooklyn and the allstar game itself is in New York why do the jerseys more dedicated to the Brooklyn nets?

  12. buckdawg says:

    Bland, boring and uninspired designs. Next!

  13. bryson says:

    THESE UNIFORMS SUCK THEY TO GO BACK WITH THE SLEEVED JERSEYS LOL

  14. bryson says:

    THESE UNIFORMS SUCK THEY NEED TO GO BACK WITH THE SLEEVED JERSEYS LOL

  15. shojaei12 says:

    The jerseys are sick. Very simple and original. The stars are awesome and their designs are creative. The fact that they don’t have any words on them make it perfect. This is going to be the first time I actually purchase an AllStar jersey. Go West!

  16. Christian says:

    I like them. They’re not really flashy or overly-decorated like I’ve seen in recent all-star games.
    These jerseys have that Chicago Bulls/76ers vibe to them.

  17. Someone Else says:

    Those players who are popular enough will get to wear them.

  18. sam30 says:

    No sleeves, which is always good. I like the simplicity of them.

  19. Swingman says:

    I like these jerseys….really dope….the sleeve jerseys are weird and always will be weird…..this is what you call a jersey.

  20. BBallFanfromNYC says:

    The jerseys look a little plain to me. The star design is nice, but I keep mixing up SI & BX. The jacket on the warmups look cool though. If a player has enough accolades, they could have a warmup that looks like the old-school leather jackets w/ the patches on them. 🙂

    • Hoops4ever says:

      “THEY SUCKS”. These jersey are way too plain and unimaginative, come on, All Star Game jerseys suppose be colorful and fancy. These look like high school jerseys.

  21. Jimmy says:

    Nice!!! Finally something more traditional, sophisticated & uniform looking!

  22. Dislike says:

    Too bland with no EAST and WEST on the front. They almost look like they are backwards with the numbers so huge on the front.

  23. LA_Bulls says:

    These jerseys are horrible, plain, no creativity.

    They should’ve put last years jerseys, but with no sleeves.

  24. DjMamba says:

    a bit too simple.. I think they could’ve put some more thought into it, but better then last years!

  25. Ed says:

    What is this? A LBJ AllStar? Retro thing is so ugly! remember when James was in Heat all their jerseys were ugly as hell now he took it to Cavs ugly jerseys again they have….Now the 2015AllStar? No way! No way!

  26. boots_san says:

    NBA all-star in detroit?

  27. boboo says:

    One looks like the Bulls’ uniform, the other looks like the USA Basketball uniform.. WTH

  28. dustydreamnz says:

    Not the best and not the worst. Best thing is they don’t have sleeves, well done NBA for listening to the fans.

  29. blazetheendlessblaze says:

    They look like they’re on backwards.

  30. Emil says:

    I don’t know what all the commotion is about, I like them and I’m pretty sure the all-star contestants will too.

  31. Michael says:

    1992 still the best.

  32. Niv says:

    Looks like the jersys of the New Jersey Nets and the Bulls

  33. XXXXXXXXXX says:

    These jerseys are just wayyyy too plain. They have too much to do with New York and Brooklyn. They could have added a lot more color and design. Last year’s jerseys were better, EXCEPT FOR THE TERRIBLE SLEEVES! Come on, add some creativity into it!

  34. XXXXXXXXXX says:

    these SUCK! ugh

  35. Nathaniel says:

    I think the jerseys are better.

  36. Nathaniel says:

    The jerseys are better. The last all star uniforms looked like kids outfits
