Your attention, please. On Thursday, Nike revealed its Jordan brand All-Star weekend threads, and the Chicago (transit) influence is strong.
The @Jumpman23 #NBAAllStar 2020 uniforms take inspiration from the city’s unifying mode of transportation — the transit line.— 2020 NBA All-Star (@NBAAllStar) January 24, 2020
The 8 lines match the number of uniforms.

The central theme of the uniforms' collective color scheme are the eight 'L' train lines — a staple of Chicago transit — and each event throughout All-Star weekend will employ a different set. The blue and red uniforms will be worn during the All-Star Game itself, the purple and yellows during the Rising Stars Challenge, the green and pinks during the Celebrity Game and the brown and yellows for the Special Olympics Unified Basketball Game.
One thing all the combinations share are six-pointed stars, an allusion to the Chicago flag. In all but the Rising Stars jerseys, the star appears in the middle of the torso, and on the green, pink, brown and yellow jerseys, the trim mirrors the sky blue/red color scheme of the original flag.
Now, for Chicago fans, the only question that remains is whether any Bulls will get a chance to don them. The two best chances: Zach LaVine in a reserve role for the game itself and/or Coby White should he receive an invite to Rising Stars.
