Rising Stars Challenge jerseys have a twist (photos)

Rising Stars Challenge participants typically wear their own teams’ uniforms, but a new format brings new jerseys for the U.S. and World teams.

In addition to Dante Exum’s above, here are Andrew Wiggins’ and Shabazz Muhammad’s:

I loved the year players wore their own teams’ jerseys in the All-Star game, one conference in home whites and the other in road darks. But I also understand the desire to sell more jerseys, so there’s a new East and West uniform each year (including this year).

That’s why this – customized team jerseys – is the perfect solution. Each player represents his own team, creating a visually appealing look across the floor, and there are new jerseys to sell.

The All-Star game should follow suit.
