Can’t mess with his airness.
Good for Mr. Double-Double.
In 1997, Latrell Sprewell was selected to his third All-Star game with the Warriors. It was a great time for the organization despite their struggles as a team. Little did we know then that the Warriors wouldn’t have an All-Star representative until 2013.
David Lee has been selected as a reserve for this year’s annual no-defense game. Stephen Curry in my opinion should have made the cut but he’ll be at home during the break.
HERE’S THE REST OF THE ALL-STAR ROSTERS
Since it’s been such a long time since the last Warriors All-Star, I decided to go to reliable Wikipedia and see what was big in 1997 — the last time the Warriors had an All-Star.
Space-themed Kevin Durant shoes with a subtle star and #35.
Check this out. Nike unveiled the shoes that LeBron James, Kobe Bryant and Kevin Durant will be wearing for the All-Star game that nobody really cares about.
As is customary for many All-Stars, the game is a showcase of new footwear for the consumers. Nike has taken the idea of space travel (the game is played in Houston) and given these three players shoes to reflect that.

NBA 2K13 had unveiled what the All-Star game jerseys would look like in the NBA but now we have official confirmation on the design of the set. As you can see above, this is the design Adidas (still hate them) will have the players wear. Once again, we’re having color vs color for the annual non-defense game.
Thanks to ESPN, they’ve given us some details on the design.
• The jersey designs are inspired by what adidas is describing as “Houston’s rich aeronautical history and the speed of the jet planes that dot its skies.” The stencil pattern for the letters and numbers is based on the stenciled numbers on a jet.
• The jerseys have a subtle background pattern that adidas is calling “impact camo,” although it really looks more like an abstract mish-mash.
