The Los Angeles Lakers are on pace to be represented at the All-Star Game for the first time since 2016 when Kobe Bryant got a send-off at the annual showcase. This year, LeBron James is set to be the highest vote-getter once again and, barring injury, will be an All-Star in the West for the first time in his career.

On Tuesday, Twitter user Josman Suri (h/t Chris Creamer of Sports Logos Net) posted a picture of the 2018-19 NBA All-Star Game jerseys which were apparently put on sale too early at a Nike store. Much like last year’s uniforms, they are base black and white jerseys with the individual players’ team logos on the front.

The main difference between this year’s jerseys and last year’s is the red, white and blue trim.

The NBA went to the monochromatic jerseys with team logos last year as the All-Star Game format changed. While each conference still gets the baseline number of All-Stars, the game no longer pits Western Conference against Eastern Conference. Instead, the top two vote-getters (one of which will almost certainly be LeBron once again) take turns drafting from the pool of All-Stars.
