For casual hoops fans, the annual spectacle that is NBA All-Star Weekend provides a wide array of entertainment. From up-and-comers squaring off in the Rising Stars Challenge to the breathtaking slams of the Dunk Contest and finally the All-Star Game itself, the excitement never stops. And for the more diehard fans, those of us who obsess over things like sneaker colorways and jersey designs, All-Star Weekend might as well be heaven on earth.

In fact, the only common thread through the years is the fact that the uniforms were worn by the game’s very best. From West to Erving, to Jordan to James, nearly every relevant player from 1951 to present day NBA has donned an All-Star jersey at one point or another. Look back on the epic rundown of changes over time with the Complete History of NBA All-Star Jerseys.
