During the Western Conference's 196-173 victory over the Eastern Conference in the 2016 NBA All-Star Game in Toronto's Air Canada Centre on Sunday night, the league unveiled the logo for the 2017 game that will be hosted by the Charlotte Hornets in North Carolina.

The team shared the logo via Twitter:

The logo, which incorporates the Hornets' team colors, was "inspired by Queen Charlotte, for whom the city was named," per the league's statement.

This will be the second time the city hosts the All-Star Game. In 1991, Philadelphia 76ers legend Charles Barkley earned MVP honors after the East knocked off the West, 116-114, at the Charlotte Coliseum.

At the time, the Hornets played in Charlotte, but they eventually moved to New Orleans. The league introduced the Charlotte Bobcats as an expansion team prior to the 2004-05 season before they adopted the Hornets' name prior to the 2014-15 season.

The 2017 All-Star Game will take place Feb. 19 at Time Warner Cable Arena.
