We’ve known this was coming for a while but now it is official:
New York City — jointly the boroughs of Manhattan and Brooklyn, and both the Knicks and Nets — will host the 2015 NBA All-Star Game, the league announced at a press conference in New York Wednesday.
Brooklyn’s new Barclay’s Center will host the Friday and Saturday night events — the Rising Stars game (rookies and second year players), the skills competition and the Dunk Contest, among other events.
Madison Square Garden will host the 64th All-Star Game itself on Sunday.
