The original page has since gone bye-bye, but the toothpaste is out of the tube: French basketball apparel site Basket4Ballers.com posted images of the 2014 NBA All-Star jerseys on Tuesday, jumping the gun on the official unveiling date and introducing the world to the uniforms designed by Adidas that the Eastern and Western Conference All-Star teams will be sporting in New Orleans on Sunday, Feb. 16.
Here they are, as captured by Paul Lukas and Phil Hecken of UniWatch:

In his initial tweet, Lukas confirmed that the East jersey was "the real deal." For what it's worth, I can, too; I did get a chance to see these recently, and this is what they look like. Just as they did on Christmas Day, NBA players will be wearing sleeved jerseys during the 2014 All-Star Game.
I won't say anything else about them just yet, but I suspect you have quite a few thoughts on these; I'll just step out of the way here and let you continue down to the comments section to let 'em rip.
