The 2022 NBA All-Star Jerseys May Have Been Leaked, And They're Absolutely Terrible

The 2022 NBA All-Star Jerseys May Have Been Leaked, And They're Absolutely Terrible

The NBA All-Star game is a pretty event. As the ultimate showcase of talent, the league pulls out all the stops to ensure the best experience possible for players and fans.

Usually, the NBA also works with their jersey provider to create an epic and custom-made uniform for the game.

This year, though, there is some real concern that the jerseys could be among the worst we've ever seen.

Apparently, the 2022 All-Star jerseys have been leaked and photos have made their rounds online.

This is obviously a subjective matter, but it certainly hasn't hit well with fans. Once the word got out about the potential leak, many expressed grief at the sight of these monstrosities.

Despite all the backlash, there is some hope amongst the fans.

Since Anthony Davis is almost sure to miss out on All-Star weekend, it seems unlikely that they'd make a jersey for him this year. In the latest return of polls, Davis was fifth in the Western Conference frontcourt.

Curry has received 4,463,426 votes, followed by LeBron with 4,386,392, and Durant with 4,088,334. DeMar DeRozan leads the Eastern Conference frontcourt votes with 2,973,854 votes, which shows he's going through a very sweet moment right now.

Golden State Warriors' Andrew Wiggins ranks 3rd in the Western Conference frontcourt voting, getting 1,829,733 votes, only trailing LeBron James and Nikola Jokic. Klay Thompson ranks 4th in the guards voting with 749,038 votes, behind teammate Curry, Ja Morant and Luka Doncic.

In the Eastern Conference, Giannis Antetokounmpo follows Kevin Durant in the frontcourt voting with a little more than 3 million. Kyrie Irving ranks 6th with more than 550K votes, surpassing up-and-raising stars like Fred VanVleet, Darius Garland and Jaylen Brown. 

Regardless of what happens, the 2022 All-Star game is shaping up to be a good one, with many faces (both new and old) set to make an appearance. With the new and improved format, things are sure to be exciting.

But if those leaked jerseys turn out to be the real thing, it could be a real downer for fan morale. We'll just have to hope that Nike came up with something better for the NBA's 75th season All-Star game.
