adidas 2011 NBA All-Star Limited Edition Jerseys

adidas and the NBA launch limited edition, commemorative boxed jerseys for the 2011 NBA

adidas and the NBA launch limited edition, commemorative boxed jerseys for the 2011 NBA All-Star Game to honor a selection of the game’s top stars. In true red carpet Hollywood fashion, each premium black lacquered box top features a gold plated 2011 NBA All-Star logo. The inside of the box features black felt lining and “Los Angeles 2011″ in gold cursive, along with a gold plated certificate of authenticity etched to read that each jersey was built to the exact specifications of the players’ on-court NBA All-Star jersey. Similar to the 2011 NBA All-Star uniforms, the jerseys feature an integrated diamond pattern that stands out under the arena lights to pay tribute to the diamond anniversary (60th game) of the NBA All-Star Game.

The stars on the back of the jersey collar signify the number of NBA All-Star appearances for each player. The number of limited edition commemorative boxes made is based on the number of NBA All-Star appearances of each player: Dwight Howard (5), Derrick Rose (2), LeBron James (7), Dwyane Wade (7), Carmelo Anthony (4), Kevin Durant (2) and Kobe Bryant (13). The boxed jerseys are available for $500 USD at the adidas Sport Performance Store in Santa Monica and on-site at the NBA Jam Session in Los Angeles.
