The 2016 NBA All-Star Game set the bar for offense and paid tribute to one of the greatest players of all time, Kobe Bryant, on Sunday night. Although the game is now over and it's back to the regular season for every team as they look to finish out the season, there is a glimpse into what is to come at next year's NBA All-Star Game.
The 2017 NBA All-Star Game is set to take place in the "Queen City" in Charlotte, where the Charlotte Hornets will host next year's All-Star Game. While the game is still a year away, the logo for next year's game has officially been released and it captures the spirit of the Queen City perfectly.

The logo is in the Hornets' color scheme and features a crown at the top of the logo to represent the Charlotte's proud nickname.

When it comes to NBA All-Star logos, this one is as sharp as they come.
The logo isn't over the top, but rather it's sharp, sleek and matches what the game and the city are all about. It's a perfect tie-in to Charlotte culture and perhaps next year, one of the Hornets can represent their team in the big game.
