The NBA announced the starting lineups for the 2013 All-Star game on Thursday, as voted in by the fans, and now the league is showing off what our favorite players will be wearing when the East and West square off in Houston on Feb. 17.
The NBA and adidas unveiled the 2013 uniforms this week. Take a look at them below:
A news release from adidas offered some background info on the jerseys and where the inspiration for this year’s design came from:
“The uniforms take inspiration from Houston’s rich aeronautical history and the speed of the jet planes that dot its skies. The uniforms’ eye-catching impact camo pattern evokes the world’s fastest fleet of aircraft with the classic silhouette of a basketball net.”
Of course, the jerseys are only one part of the overall uniform. Adidas went on to describe the rest of the players’ attire:
“Players will take to the court in black-and-white aviator-style NBA All-Star warm-ups featuring metal zippers made with a similar anodized finish used on airplanes. Each player’s jacket will be customized to represent individual career accomplishments such as NBA All-Star Game appearances and All-Star MVP awards, NBA titles, in addition to regular season awards and Scoring Championships.”
If you like the look of the jerseys, then you are in luck because they are already available at the NBA online store.
