Nike had it rough the first year it became the official NBA uniform manufacturer, with lightweight uniforms being ripped to shreds, and Christmas day uniforms being less than festive- seems like they’ve learned from their mistakes, and have turned it up to 11 if the leaked images of the new 2018 All Star jersey are anything to go off of.
The big test will come in February; with the traditional East vs West All Star format, anything is possible; thankfully it looks like Nike decided to keep it calm with a black and white motif this year rather than going all out on some fabulous design.
While the images have not yet officially been revealed, however the player’s team logo will make a front-facing debut with Jordan Brand’s Jumpman logo and the KIA logo on the back.

No word on which teams will wear black jerseys and which will wear white, especially since the 2018 All Star game is being decided by draft vote- decisions are due by the 25th though, so we should know soon. The game itself is going down at the Staples Center in Los Angeles from February 16-18th, starting at 8pm ET, Feb 18th.
Keep your eyes peeled for the “official” unveiling of the 2018 All-Star jerseys and keep your eyes peeled to Hip Hop Bling for the hottest iced out chains like Lebron rocks off-court.
