The NBA could be taking the All-Star Weekend extravaganza to New York City on two different occasions in the next seven years. There are talks of the NBA awarding the All-Star Game in 2015 to Madison Square Garden and having its All-Star weekend events leading up to the game held in Brooklyn. Madison Square Garden and Barclays Center continue to be in discussions with the league, with each entity looking to host the 64th annual All-Star game.
The league plans on making a decision in September. The idea of having the Knicks and Nets co-host the weekend has been known since last February. It’s also possible that the All-Star Game could return to New York before 2020, with the setup mirroring the original idea in 2015. MSG would host the Friday and Saturday activities, while Barclays would host Sunday's game.
