Photos: adidas unveils 2012 NBA All-Star uniforms


The starters for the 2012 NBA All-Star game will be announced Thursday night on TNT, and now, thanks to today’s release from adidas, we know what they’ll be wearing on the court on Feb.26. Some highlights:

“The 2012 NBA All-Star uniforms were designed by adidas and inspired by the 
20th anniversary of the memorable 1992 NBA All-Star game which was also 
held in Orlando. Inspired by the Sunshine State and the fun atmosphere of 
NBA All-Star weekend, adidas NBA All-Star basketball shoes feature bright
orange coloring to pay homage to Orlando’s Orange County and the state’s
famous oranges.

“The All-Star jerseys feature oversized East and West All-Star block
lettering that was inspired by 1992 jerseys. The jackets and jerseys
 feature dip-dyed hardwood heather pattern inspired by the floor of the 
Orlando Arena where the game was held. The tonal blue and red, and three 
stripes silver and gold accent coloring on the jerseys and short sides will
 make the uniforms stand out on court. The woven NBA All-Star shorts are 
inspired by board shorts and also feature a sublimated mesh pattern for 
high performance and breathability.”

These are some of the nicest uniforms in recent memory, with excellent detail. Check out the additional photos below and let us know your thoughts in the comments.

Bradley Beal drives around, dunks over Kristaps Porzingis (VIDEO)

1 Comment

If you’re a Knicks fan, the positive is that at least Kristaps Porzingis tried to make a play.

But he was not going to stop the athletic Bradley Beal with a full head of steam, and the result was a Beal dunking over Porzingis as he tries to block the attempt.

Beal wasn’t sharp, scoring 12 points on 5-of-14 shooting. The Knicks has an efficient Carmelo Anthony and that got them the win.
