Adidas, the NBA's official apparel provider, has revealed the uniforms from the 64th NBA All-Star Game which is set to take place on February 15 in New York City.

The new uniforms have been uniquely designed to pay tribute to New York City's basketball history.

For the first time since the 1960s, they will not have a conference identifier on them. Eastern Conference players will wear white and players for the Western Conference will wear black.

The Western Conference jerseys will have white name lettering and red numbers and the East Conference jerseys have black name lettering and blue numbers - the colouring signifies the tradition of the NBA All-Star jerseys.

It is also noted that for the time in an All-Star game, both the players' first and last names with be on the back of the jerseys.

New York City inspiration 

A point out feature from the uniform is the five stars in the side panel, which each represent New York City's five boroughs with a unique pattern.

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

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.

Uniquely designed 

Chris Grancio, the adidas global basketball general manager, saif on the 64th annual NBA All-Star game: "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.

"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 jerseys have astonishing attention to detail on every specific part, rightly so as well, as the jersey will set you back a mere £70 and will be officially available on NBAStore.eu and NBAStore.com along with the full NBA All-Star adidas apparel range.
