This is a bit more NBA related, but being Tyreke and DeMarcus will clearly be invited to play in the Rookie-Sophomore game (and most likely Omri Casspi as well), they’ll have some new uniform options. Okay, not really, but run with me here….
The NBA is going to test out the new “compression jersey” during All-Star weekend, which will give the participating players the option of playing in their normal jersey or these new alternatives. They’re certainly, um, interesting.
Adidas feels these new uniforms will allow players to avoid wearing the compression jersey they already wear under their current more baggy counterpart and reviews of the Nike System Of Dress uniforms (which are cut similar, though a bit more loose) in the NCAA ranks have went over pretty well.
Also? I can totally see Rose’s ulcer in that picture.
Oh – and one more thing. This is actually for the All-Star game only, not the Rookie-Sophomore game/Skills Challenge where King players will be potentially playing. So keep your pants on. For now.
