April 17th was the 13th annual Jordan Brand Classic.  The Jordan Brand Classic was played at the Barclays Center in New York and featured 4 different games showcasing the next great players of the game.  Jordan came out with new uniforms for this event.

Jordan followed the Adidas trend with these uniforms by placing the focal point on the shorts.  I have to say they did a much better job than Adidas, and I would definitely wear these shorts casually.  However, with only two colors for both teams these shorts created minor confusion for viewers.

Both things considered, I am indifferent towards these uniforms.  However, these uniforms were made by Jordan and Jordan is King when it comes to basketball brands. So these uniforms get the benefit of the doubt and I'm bumping my rating from a C to a B.

No matter how you felt about the Jordan Brand Classic uniforms, at least Niki Minaj was on point during her performance.  She wore this exclusive pair of Air Jordan 1's.
