The Cavs and the city of Cleveland are going to be next in line to host the NBA All-Star Game and the organization released their logo for the game.
The Cavs will host the NBA All-Star Game in 2022, which will be the third time the team has been selected as hosts for the event. The last time the team had the honor was in 1997 and now in 2022, they look to have a memorable event once again.
The team unveiled their new logo for the event, which sees the city’s initials (“CLE“) and the year (’22) separated by the top of a star. The star’s top portion is designed after the famous Cleveland landmark, the Terminal Tower.
Inside the star is the iconic NBA logo, with the Cavs colors of wine and gold on each side. It’s a simple, yet stylish logo that the Cavs design team personally came up with.
This reveal came the morning after the 2021 All-Star game wrapped up. Team LeBron defeated Team Durant, 170-150, behind Giannis Antetokounmpo’s MVP night. He shot a perfect 16-16, for 35 points. The All-Star game festivities didn’t end there, as all the usual events were still held, besides the World vs. USA Rising Stars Challenge.
Anfernee Simons won the NBA Slam Dunk Contest in a field that only contained two other players; Obi Toppin and Cassius Stanley. Steph Curry held of Michael Conley Jr. in the Three-Point Shooting Contest, with Currty edging out the Jazz star by just one point in the final round.
In the NBA Skills competitions, Pacers star Domantas Sabonis defeated Knicks forward Julius Randle, Mavs mega-star Luka Doncic, and the Magics’ franchise center, Nikola Vucevic. This competition contained the most shenanigans. Jalen Brunson heckled his star-teammate on Twitter after Doncic lost, and Doncic blamed it on not being prepared, while Sabonis was unsure if he was allowed to keep the trophy.
