Because not all home jersies are white anymore. The Pacers wear a gawd awful yellow home uni, for instance. It could get confusing who is on what team.

All teams do have white. So they'll more than likely make them wear white even if it isn't their home team.

Ya, I think each player should wear their own team jersey, but I think that everyone should wear retros... that would be cool!

They make more money by making annual All-Star Jerseys and recycling the name on the back...

Sad you would remember that, you either have advanced memory or your year produced nothing memorable

I would love for them to go back to wearing their own jerseys, but the obvious answer to why they dont is...

I loved seeing them play with their jerseys. The uniforms now are ugly.

Looks like from 1997-2001 they had it that way.

Yeah... eastern conference wears white, west wear coloured. And everybody has a white alternate jersey (though LA and Indy usually play at home in yellow). I liked it when they did it this way and usually the all-star jerseys are ugly.

People here that say merchandise is wrong IMO. Because all the NBA would have to do for the players regular team jerseys is just stick an all star logo on the side of the jersey and they would still sell as much as the all star jerseys would.

Is this the 3rd or 4th year running? I lost track of how many times you've *****ed about this.

No way.

People are much more likely to buy a completely different style all star jersey as opposed to the same jersey they (likely) already have, with just an added patch.

They should make an alternate team jersey for the game. Something still in the team's colors, but completely modified and changed to be something different than the team ever wears during the regular season.

West wears colors and East wears white, or vice versa.

Solves your money problem, as fans will want to buy the revamped alternate jersey. To me, it would sell more than the ugly East and West jerseys that all look alike. There's not team or player aspect of it to make it standout. I can't imagine sales of All Star jerseys are that high.
