The NBA released the All Star 2015 logo on Thursday for the weekend of events to be co-hosted by the Brooklyn Nets and New York Knicks.

The logo uses a New York City subway-inspired design. More from the league:

Inspired by the design of the iconic public transportation signs that adorn many corners of America’s largest city, the logo includes colors reminiscent of the subway and bus lines that connect each of the five boroughs: The Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens and Staten Island.

It will be the fifth time New York City has hosted the All-Star Game. The Barclays Center will host events on Friday and Saturday before the action shifts to Madison Square Garden for the All-Star Game on Sunday night.
