Adidas unveils 2015 NBA All-Star Game jerseys
Adidas has unveiled the jerseys that will be worn during the NBA All-Star Game in February.
The 64th All-Star Game will be played at Madison Square Garden in New York City on Feb. 15.
Adidas, the official on-court apparel provider for the NBA, said the Eastern Conference All-Star uniforms will have black name lettering and blue numbers with the Western Conference uniforms bearing white name lettering and red numbers.
The uniforms will have herringbone detail on the East/West patch and jock tags, both of which pay tribute to the Brooklyn's Barclays Center court, where several All-Star events will take place. The New York Knicks font is used for player name and number.
The player’s first and last names will be featured on the back of the jersey for the first time in All-Star game history. The player’s warm-ups will be black, gray and white, and will feature satin accents and military-style star patches celebrating the number of NBA All-Star appearances for each player.
The on-court warm-ups includes a three-quarter-sleeve shooting shirt and tapered pant. The players also will have a jacket with customized patches representing the NBA's top individual honors, including NBA Most Valuable Player, NBA Rookie of the Year, NBA All-Star Game MVP and NBA Championships.
The jerseys will be available at NBAStore.com and will cost between $80 and $110.
New York’s five boroughs will be represented a side panel:
Queens: a pattern inspired by the stainless steel orbit rings of the borough’s iconic Unisphere, which 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
