The NBA will once again rock Jordan Brand uniforms for the NBA All-Star game. The host city Charlotte provided the inspiration for this year’s look along with the memorable 1991 NBA All-Star Game. The early 90’s style played a big role in the inspiration for the graphics and color combination of red, white and blue. As a tribute to the host team, the uniform’s shorts include a 1991-inspired logo on the waist and side, a honeycomb pattern integrated into the NBA star logo and crowns for Queen City on the vents. We see uses of military inspired stencil font for numbers and names, a tribute to the flight heritage of North Carolina. Similar to last year’s uniform color palette, team logos, player names and numbers all appear in black, and contrasting-color stars appear down each side as a tribute to past All-Star Game designs.
“With the game being in Charlotte, we were presented with a great opportunity to look at the rich history of the city and its many connections to our brand. You see this come together with the 1991 inspiration combined with the clean black and white design language,” says Jordan Brand Vice President of Design David Creech.
