The 2009 NBA All-Star uniforms are futuristic

For the first time ever, the new NBA All-Star uniforms were unveiled exclusively in Men's Fitness. (Well, sort of. Brent Pollakoff of NBA FanHouse caught them online weeks ago.) Regardless, via NBA Noise, here's a bigger and better look at the new ASG digs Kobe, LeBron and Jameer Nelson will be sporting this February:

According to someone in the know, the influence of Phoenix in the design is undeniable: "The horizontal lines resemble Arizona's rock formations, while the progression of color (desert red for the West, sunset blue for the East) is emblematic of the legendary bird rising from the flames."

Yeah, whatever. They're better than last year's two-tone nightmares. That's good enough for me.

But what do you think: love 'em or hate 'em? David Stern values your input.
