NEW YORK (AP) — The NBA All-Stars will wear jerseys with sleeves during this season’s midseason celebration in New Orleans.

The NBA and athletic apparel giant Adidas revealed the All-Star game uniforms Thursday. The NBA All-Star game is scheduled for Feb. 16.

The Eastern Conference will wear blue and the West will wear red, but the jerseys will feature Mardi Gras colors — green and purple.

The NBA All-Star logo appears on the chest of the jerseys in the shape of the fleur-de-lis, the official symbol of Louisiana.
