NBA to allow skin-tight uniforms for All-Star game: The jerseys that NBA players wear every night are pretty tame by the standards of contemporary uniforms. They're fairly loose, feature few colors like teal or the neon yellow adored by the University of Oregon, and generally are engineered to appeal to as many fans as possible.

eh! I don't want to say who cares, but I'd prefer not to see some of these guys in skin tights. I'd like to see the neon green tho. That'd be pretty cool.

I dunno, scuubie. I'm straight, and Dwight Howard doesn't look to shabby with his skin-tight shirt he wears anyways. Looks even more like a beast.

My reaction was that there are some guys that I'm glad are out of the league at this point.

Joe Kleine


Darryl Dawkins

Bryant Reeves (he might be the ichiban)

Ah, but there are still some in that would look just delightful in the skinnies. I'm looking at you, Brian Scalabrine.

They need to do something. Who wants to waste money on the current NBA jerseys? Yawn.

Somebody make a joke about the WNBA so I don't have to, please.

the Silver Stars would have to be strategically placed.
