NBA to allow skin-tight uniforms for All-Star game

2 Feb

The jerseys that NBA players wear every night are pretty tame by the standards of contemporary uniforms. They’re fairly loose, feature few colors like teal or the neon yellow adored by the University of Oregon, and generally are engineered to appeal to as many fans as possible. That’s why pretty much every team in the league wears blue or red, the least offensive colors of all-time, unless you’re a hardcore political activist or a gang member.

However, it turns out the league and adidas have different sartorial plans for the All-Star game. For the first time ever, players will have the option of wearing skin-tight jersey tops. From Paul Lukas at the essential Uni Watch:

That’s an idea that the NBA has decided to test-drive in the upcoming all-star game. The league will announce today that all players in that game will have the option of wearing skin-tight compression tanks instead of the standard Adidas jerseys.

It isn’t yet clear how many people will take the league up on this offer.
