With the roster of the 2013 NBA All-Star Game days away from being announced, Adidas -- the official on-court apparel provider for the league -- unveiled Wednesday (January 16) the uniforms the players will be wearing during the big game February 17 in Houston.
The uniforms take inspiration from Houston's rich aeronautical history and the speed of the jet planes that dot its skies. The eye-catching impact camo pattern evokes the world's fastest fleet of aircraft with the classic silhouette of a basketball net.
"The NBA All-Star Game is an exciting time to unite adidas' line of performance and style products to celebrate the court-to-street style that runs through basketball culture around the world," said Lawrence Norman, adidas Vice President, Global Basketball. "2013 marks adidas' sixth season designing NBA All-Star uniforms and every year we look forward to introducing performance innovations that help the best basketball players in the world lift off and take their games to the next level in front of a global audience."
The 2013 NBA All-Star uniforms feature specially-engineered mesh to provide maximum mobility and breathability. The West (red) and East (royal blue) uniforms also feature the iconic Adidas three-stripe design flanking the side of both the jersey and shorts, while its lettering and numbers are inspired by the stenciled style on jet planes.
The warm-ups are black-and-white, and feature metal zippers made with a similar anodized finish that is used on airplanes. Each jacket will be customized to represent the individual career accomplishments of each player, such as NBA All-Star Game appearances and All-Star MVP awards, NBA titles, in addition to season awards including MVP, Rookie of the Year, Defensive Player of the Year and Scoring Championships.
