Before they take over Houston for All-Star festivities, let's take a look at what adidas Basketball was up to this past week.

Last night, the NBA announced the participants for the All-Star Saturday events and several adidas athletes will be in the mix. Damian Lillard, Brandon Knight, Jeff Teague and Jrue Holiday will compete in the Skills Challenge; Brook Lopez will represent in the Eastern Conference in Shooting Stars; and "The Manimal" Kenneth Faried will be wearing stripes when he takes on a stacked field in the Slam Dunk Contest. They'll join All-Stars Dwight Howard and Tim Duncan (along with Holiday and Lopez) in Houston.

On the court, we're still enjoying Hardwood Classics month, which features six teams wearing popular 90s throwback uniforms. Josh Smith and the Atlanta Hawks brought back the "Spreadwings" unis against the Pacers on Tuesday, while Taj Gibson and the Chicago Bulls have been doing work in classic pinstripes. Ersan Ilyasova's Milwaukee Bucks rolled out the "Full Buck" look and John Salmons is representing out west in Sacramento's "Checkerboard" uniforms. Tonight, the Miami Heat will host the Los Angeles Clippers in "Deep Red."

In terms of sneakers, it was a pretty strong week for the TMAC 1 and D Rose 3. J-Smoove and Deshawn Stevenson broke out the Black/Red/Gold colorway that matches the "Spreadwings" unis perfectly, while Iman Shumpert rocked the Royal/Lead pair against Washington. Mike Conley debuted black and white-based colorways of the Rose 3 and Damian Lillard laced up the 'Home' colorway
