With all the vintage NBA jerseys we have in stock, it was only destiny that Rare Vintage Wear would make an appearance at the 2014 NBA All Star Weekend in New Orleans. And no I wasn’t called in by Adidas at the last minute to redesign the awful sleeved uniforms!

The Roots performed alongside Rick Ross and Lebron James at the GQ NBA All Start Weekend Party on Saturday night. Check out Frank Knuckles from The Legendary Roots crew sporting one of our exclusive Rare VNTG x Starter snapbacks in gold next to Lebron James.

Apparently Adidas didn’t get the memo reguarding everyones negative feelings about the sleeved Christmas day jerseys. The fun doesn’t stop there! Check out the 2014 NBA All Star Game uniforms for the Eastern and Western Conference. You’ll quickly notice they take inspiration from the host city New Orleans. Jersey fans like myself wish the NBA would stick to classic designs and move away from the sleeved jersey concept.
