Thanks to the NBA Shop, we now know what basketball's biggest stars will be wearing on-court for the 2011 NBA All-Star Game. The game will take place in Los Angeles on February 20th.
For quite awhile now, the all-star jerseys each year have been a bit outlandish, often featuring crazy patterns and gaudy designs. This year the adidas jerseys are red and gold for the Western Conference and blue and silver for the Eastern Conference. Both "East" and "West" appear in block lettering, where shadowing gives off the illusion of "bling." Perhaps a nod to the glitz and glamour of L.A.? The jersey backs have large block numbers above the player's name and a textured red on red (or blue on blue) design on the back. Other subtle details include the All-Star Game patch on the bottom corner and the year 2011 near the neckline.

If you're dying to get your hands on one, head to the NBA Store where they are offering customization options. It will only set you back $250.
The jerseys are nothing too special, but this year's gear certainly tops what we've seen in some previous years. Remember these?:
