The NBA All-Star Game returns to New Orleans this weekend, and we're taking a look back at seven of the best (and worst) jersey designs in recent memory. Here they are, ranked from worst to best.

These are an abomination. It appears that zero effort went into designing the 2017 All-Star uniforms, and a random fan with a basic understanding of Microsoft Paint could have done a better job if given the chance.
While we appreciate the nod to the hosting city, these uniforms are objectively ridiculous.
The subtlety on the front of the jerseys got our attention, but the full name on the back ended up ruining the experience.
2014, New Orleans
We're not as upset by the sleeves as some, and the matching colors of the jerseys and the shorts (along with the fleur de lis design) made these a sharp choice the last time the game was in New Orleans back in 2014.
These beauties stayed the same from 1991-94, and were a classic choice.
2007, Las Vegas
The script font paid tribute to the type of gaudy neon sign one might see in the host city, and was one of the most unique designs in recent memory.
In the 2003 NBA All-Star Game, the uniform design reverted back to MJ's first All-Star appearance in 1990. That alone was enough to get this particular jersey into the top spot.
