From 1997-2001, the NBA didn't have special All-Star uniforms. Each player on the home team would wear their own white jersey, the away team would wear their road colors. The league went back to All-Star unis in 2002. Here's a young Kobe and an old MJ. Maybe they're talking about their sweet retro jerseys, but more likely Kobe is complaining that he doesn't get enough shots.
