With the 2017 NBA All-Star game about a month away, adidas has officially unveiled the uniforms for the annual event.
This year, the 66th annual NBA All-Star game will be held in New Orleans. It will see the West All-Stars in a primarily black uniform, while the East All-Stars will be sporting a grey uniform, with both kits using the classic blue and red hits.
Upon first look, I had to do a double-take because I literally thought these were the next McDonlads All-American Game uniforms. It is worth noting that the NBA changed the venue of this year’s All-Star festivities this past summer (due to issues with the state of North Carolina) and this could have definitely thrown a huge curveball at whoever is in charge of designing these kits.
Fans on Twitter apparently aren’t too happy and showed their displeasure for the design with a couple of great gifs:
