NBA Unveils Uniforms For 2023 All-Star Game

In addition to announcing team captains and starters on Thursday night, the NBA unveiled the uniforms for the 2023 All-Star Game, which will take place in Salt Lake City on Feb. 19.

The jerseys are reminiscent of the Utah Jazz’s City Edition uniforms, which both featured a gradient design, albeit not as defined. One design features a red-to-yellow gradient, while the other features a blue-to-black gradient.

The piping on the side of the uniforms pulls inspiration from the 2017-20 City Edition uniform, specifically, tracing the canals of the Bonneville Salt Flats rather than the roadways to St. George and Moab. 

Both uniforms are complete with white numbers and a white All-Star wordmark across the chest, as well as the Jordan Jumpman logo and KIA logo on opposite shoulders.

There’s also the league-wide memorial patch for late Boston Celtics great Bill Russell on the right shoulder of the jerseys, as shown above, though that doesn’t appear on the retail versions below.

The shorts, meanwhile, have the opposite gradient effect of the jerseys, fading from yellow to red or black to blue, and include a UTA23 wordmark on the waistband, five stars on the left leg and the All-Star Game’s secondary logo on the right.

The stars are notably aligned with the formation of Utah’s five national parks, including (from left to right) Zion, Bryce Canyon, Capitol Reef, Canyonlands and Arches.

This marks the sixth year the league has used the captain format rather than East vs. West, with 19-time All-Star LeBron James and seven-time All-Star Giannis Antetokounmpo set to choose their teams shortly before the game.

Team LeBron will be in the blue and black uniforms, while Team Giannis will wear the yellow and red uniforms. They’ll conduct a draft prior to tipoff of the 72nd annual NBA All-Star Game, which is set for 7:30 p.m. ET on TNT, to fill out the rest of their teams.
