NBA unveils 2011 All-Star jerseys

The NBA has unveiled its 2011 All-Star jerseys. Posted by Ben Golliver.

With the 2011 NBA All-Star game just a month or so away, the NBA unveiled the official jerseys for the game on NBA.com's store.

Made by NBA apparel provider Adidas, the jerseys come in two colors: red and gold for the Western Conference and blue and silver for the Eastern Conference. 

The jersey fronts are plain other than the words "The West" and "The East" in block letters highlighted by a shadow and another star above the numbers. A modified version of the official NBA logo, encased in a star, appears over the left breast while the Adidas logo is on the right breast. An All-Star logo appears on the lower left portion of the jersey. 

The jersey backs have large block numbers above the player's name in smaller lettering, with a textured star design silhouetted into the background on the bottom of the jersey. 

NBA.com also notes that the jerseys are "decorated with Heat-applied twill All-Star graphics and features stitched-down ClimaLite® mesh numbers for breathable comfort."

Final verdict: not too memorable, but not terrible by any means. And, most importantly, no giant cacti like 1994

The 2011 NBA All-Star game will be held at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California on Feb. 20.
