Capturing Hoops History: The 2024 NBD All-Star Jersey Photo Shoot

In the vibrant heart of Indianapolis, where the echoes of bouncing basketballs are a melody to our ears, Driverseat is proud to introduce the 2024 NBD All-Star Jerseys. In every thread, the heartbeat of Indy's courts, these jerseys are more than just sportswear; they are a tribute to our city's enduring love for basketball.

To capture the essence of these jerseys, we teamed up with Julian Short, a renowned photographer from Chicago, for a photo shoot that's as rich in narrative as it is in imagery. Our journey began at a stunning mural, a recent addition to our city's artistic landscape, featuring future WNBA #1 pick Caitlin Clark and NBA All-Star guard Tyrese Haliburton. Where art and sports converge, our story unfolds; this masterpiece, created by the talented local artist Kwazar Martin, stands as a testament to the talent that Indianapolis breeds. Against this backdrop, our jerseys shine brilliantly, symbolizing the intersection of local pride and national acclaim, illuminating the legacy of legends.

Our adventure didn't end there. We moved to Watkins Park, a place etched in the memories of those who grew up in Indianapolis. Beneath the hoops history, our legacy leaps, here, amidst the competitive shouts on the courts, our models, draped in the blue and white of the 2024 NBD All-Star Jerseys, brought to life the spirit of community and passion for basketball that thrives in this park.

These jerseys are a nod to the 1985 NBA All-Star game, the first hosted in our beloved city. Echoing a past era, crafting the future of hoops fashion, they are designed to be e replica of those that were worn on court by numerous Basketball Hall of Famers that year, but with a modern twist. Moving away from the full embroidery of our initial samples, these jerseys feature a fully sublimated design on medium-weight mesh, tailored to perfection. They are not just a piece of apparel but a piece of history, blending the legacy of a bygone era with the contemporary style of today's streetwear.

Through Julian Short's lens, we didn't just capture photos; we told a story. Through each snapshot, a chapter of our city's basketball soul, a story of our city, our love for basketball, and our commitment to honoring our roots while embracing the future. These jerseys are more than just a product; they are a piece of Indianapolis's soul.

We invite you to be a part of this narrative. To wear these jerseys is to carry the legacy of Indianapolis basketball. Visit us at and join us in celebrating not just a game, but a way of life. Wear your pride, wear your history, wear Driverseat.
