2016 NBA All-Star game uniforms are pretty awesome

The NBA All-Star game is one of the biggest events of the early part of the year. It includes skill events like the three-point and slam dunk contest, though it has lost some of its grandeur in the last few years.

This year, the All-Star game is sure to be an exciting one.

The uniforms for both the East and West teams have been revealed and they are actually pretty cool this year.

These uniform are very simple and aren’t over-the-top. They also make an homage to Canada, since the game is being played north of the border, and it looks like the NBA slipped in a reference to the Toronto Raptors with what looks to be claw marks on the basketball.

Those are subtle details, but they are still very cool. All-Star weekend begins on February 12, 2016 with the game taking place on February, 14.
