2015 NBA All-Star Schedule of Events
For the first time, the NBA has extended the All-Star break a few days. Cleveland at Chicago on Thursday Feb. 12 will be the last game before the All-Star Weekend, and the regular season will restart with a TNT doubleheader on Feb. 19. All the NBA teams will have at least an eight days break, three days more than the last All-Star breaks.
The league last split sites for the All-Star Weekend in 2010, when the Saturday events were in the Dallas Mavericks’ arena and the game was held at the Cowboys’ stadium.
The NBA All-Star Game has been held in New York City four times — 1954, 1955, 1968 and 1998 when Michael Jordan scored 23 points and won his third All-Star MVP trophy, and has gone exclusively to warm-weather cities in recent years. Now it will come back to New York a year after the city hosts the Super Bowl. The only All-Star Game hosted by the Nets (East Rutherford) was in 1982, at Continental Airlines Arena.
Barclays Center probably will host a NBA All-Star Game in the near future, as soon as 2017. Knicks and Nets franchises could co-host again, exchanging arenas/events.
