NBA All-Stars to Wear Spandex Uniforms

What you see above are the new TECHFIT PowerWeb compression jerseys that adidas is offering as an option to wear in this year’s All-Star Game. As in, that’s the whole jersey. Nothing under it. Nothing over it. Just skin tight spandex, a name and a number. The look is … interesting.

As you probably gathered from that first sentence, these aren’t the only jerseys that will be offered in Los Angeles, as adidas will also be supplying all the All-Stars with the standard Revolution 30 jersey that you see every night in the NBA. That’s good news, especially if Kevin Love gets picked as a reserve. No offense to the guy, but let’s just say that a spandex top looks better on some people than on others. However, I’m sure somebody will wear one of these, at least for a little bit. If this doesn’t have Dwight Howard’s name written on it, I don’t know what does.

Was going to say something along the lines of the next step will be the Dwight Howard sports bra that he's fond of wearing, but the authors already shouted out D12, so I'll just ask, what do you all think about this look?

Update 4:50 AM
Celtics life has learned that Lakers llama star Pau Gasol has decided he will be sporting the "Optional Uniform" for the All-Star game. He made some alterations I see and we can only hope that Mr. Stern with be as aggressive in threatening to fine the Laker as he was with Rajon Rondo and his harmless upside down headband. Note to Pau: After your piss poor soft performance against the Celtics on Sunday, you'll be lucky if you make the team.

We'll keep you posted if anymore news breaks.
