Knicks and Nets fans rejoice! For the first time since 1998, the NBA All-Star game returns to New York City this February at Madison Square Garden. This will be the first year ever the All-star practice and game will be presented to an arena-size audience.
Fans get the special privilege of attending more affordable pre-game experiences at Madison Square Garden, including the All-Star Celebrity Game, Feb 13 at 7pm, the All-Star game practice, Feb 13 at 10:30am, or the BBVA Compass Rising Stars Challenge (where the NBA's best rookies and sophomores tip off) at Barclays Center Feb 13 at 9pm. The celebrity game will feature coaches Carmelo Anthony, Spike Lee and ESPN Radio's Mike Greenberg and Mike Golic. Last year fans got to see comedian Kevin Hart, television personality/Mariah Carey-ex/gigolo Nick Cannon, actor Michael B. Jordan, and WNBA star Skylar Diggins ballin' hard, and one can only guess who'll be on the team this year (Mike Bloomberg?).
Tickets start at just $15, so grab 'em while you can! The voting for the 2015 All-Star roster is going on now, so don't forget to cast your ballot. Hey now, you're an all-star, get your game on, go play!
