The NBA All-Star jerseys this year are super lame


The Smoothie King Center, home of the New Orleans Pelicans, will get the honor of hosting the 2017 NBA All-Star Game instead of Charlotte this season due to North Carolina’s controversial HB2 law. That’s great for the city of New Orleans and — regardless of where it is — great for people who like betting the over (always bet the over in the NBA All-Star Game). What is not great are the All-Star jerseys which look like they were designed by the Clippers.

You can create more elaborate jerseys in NBA 2K9. Trust me, I’ve done it.

The optimal option for All-Star jerseys would be to just have each player wear their home/road versions of their own team’s jersey. It’s what the MLB does for their All-Star game and even the Pro Bowl — if that still exists — does that with the helmets. We all know though that everything is about money and the All-Star game is just another avenue to sell another variation of a player’s jersey. It’s why the Christmas jerseys exist. It’s why those dumb sleeve jerseys exist. Believe it or not, there are people out there who just might make it a point to have every variation of… I dunno… Randy Moss’ jersey just because they are obsessed with Randy Moss. (Right, Informer)?

Unfortunately for the NBA and Adidas, I doubt these will sell too well considering how lame they are. They will sell because Bucks fans will just need to have Giannis Antetokounmpo’s first All-Star Game uni no matter how lame it is, but what happened to the days of jerseys like these?

I know teal is a ’90s thing. They don’t need to be teal, but these have life. These are f***** All-Star Game jerseys. The 2017 ones? Your mom got those made for your intramural team back in high school.
