Leaked NBA All-Star jersey has sleeves

Published Add your comment

The NBA All-Star jerseys have been leaked online after appearing on a French retail website called Basket4Ballers.

The website in question accidently listed the jerseys, which will be worn in the NBA All-Star game on February 16th in New Orleans, before quickly taking them down.

But it was too late and a number of people had picked up the image and spread it around social media site Twitter.

A rather surprising detail of this year's jerseys is that they feature sleeves, running in line with the jerseys that 10 NBA teams wore on Christmas Day.

Uniform numbers will be on the left sleeves with the big East and West logos on the chest.

The East is blue with a green trim while the West version is red with a purple trim.

NBA officials declined to comment on the images but the belief is that the shirts are legitimate. report that the images match those that were obtained in a leaked adidas All-Star cateloug from an industry source.

The addition of sleeves to the All-Star jersey is further evidence that the NBA are trying to force them in to the mainstream.

Some players have criticised the long sleeves saying they are too restrictive and further negative comments at the All-Star game could see the experiment laid to rest.
