PHOTO: 2014 NBA All-Star jerseys reportedly leaked

By Matt Moore | NBA writer

On Thursday, images leaked of supposed jerseys for the 2014 NBA All-Star game. The jersey features a black background, green typeface, a Fleur-de-lis in honor of the host city, New Orleans, and... sleeves.

The jerseys were first leaked on French website Basket4Ballers.com and then reportedly confirmed by UniWatch.

Lets' be really clear. The tyranny of sleeves in the NBA must end. I don't care how profitable it is, this is a disgrace to everything basketball. The players by and large have expressed distaste with them, ranging from "eh, not big on them" to "I hate them." And they just look weird. The NBA used them for Christmas and they were all gross.

Other than that, I like the design. The silver logo beneath the back number is nice, and I'm a big Fleur-de-lis fan. I even like the open-ended collar ring. It's pretty great overall. But something's just not quite right. Like if you just took away one element it would be perfect. What could that be? Let's see.

Oh, right, the sleeves.

Ban sleeves.
