After all these years, it might still have to be the shoes. After all, it couldn't have been those short-sleeve jerseys that helped players break all of those records during the 2014 NBA All-Star Game.

The players have not exactly been thrilled about the sleeved uniforms since they were introduced earlier this season but they were sporting them for the NBA's exhibition event in New Orleans on Sunday. Despite the sleeve mandate, the game's best and brightest still managed to bring a bit of style to the hardwood with their sneakers.

Here is a closer look at the kicks sported by nine players in New Orleans:
