NBA All-Star Weekend is fast approaching and there’s much to look forward to. Unlike any other All-Star Weekend in history, this year’s installment will be split between two of the NBA’s best venues: Barclays Center and Madison Square Garden.
This February, the greatest basketball talents in the world will meet in the Big Apple for a slew of different events. Madison Square Garden will host both the Sprint NBA All-Star Celebrity Game, which has grown in popularity every year of its existence, and the All-Star Game itself to close out the weekend.
Just across the East River, Barclays Center will host the Rising Stars Challenge — an All-Star game between NBA rookies and sophomores — and the State Farm All-Star Saturday Night on Valentine’s Day, which includes the highly popular three-point shooting contest and the iconic slam dunk competition.
It’s sure to be quite a weekend for basketball fans around the world — and especially in New York City.
