The 2021 NBA All-Star game is set to take place Sunday, March 7.
In anticipation of the big outing, team captains LeBron James of the Los Angeles Lakers and Kevin Durant of the Brooklyn Nets will select their teams this coming Thursday.
Although All-Star weekend has obviously been condensed this year due to COVID-19, there is still a degree of celebration and hype surrounding the event.
As such, it should come as no surprise that fans were eagerly awaiting to see what the jerseys would look like for the two All-Star squads.
On Wednesday, they got their answer.
The Twitter account @camisasdanba, which frequently beats everyone to the punch when it comes to unveiling uniforms, revealed what would likely be worn by Team LeBron and Team Durant this Sunday.

Embora o evento tenha sido transferido para Atlanta, os uniformes seguem a comunicação do Indiana Pacers, com uma clara referência ao modelo dos anos 80. #NBAAllStar pic.twitter.com/8GnscI1bTz

There are literally hundreds of not thousands of talented people on Twitter alone who come up with incredible designs, but the actual NBA and Nike throw out this garbage lol

Fashion is always a big thing during All-Star weekend. You will recall, TNT broadcaster Kristen Ledlow’s outfit stole the show last year. And the NBA, in general, is a very fashionable league – as James Harden proved recently. Because of that, expectations are generally pretty high for All-Star uniform unveilings.
That said – considering the shockingly ugly jerseys that the Boston Celtics and New York Knicks have shown off in recent months, nothing should come as a surprise any more.
