New York Knicks and Brooklyn Nets Bidding to Host 2015 NBA All-Star Game

The 2015 All-Star Game could be played either in Manhattan and Brooklyn are two potential destinations for the 2015 NBA All-Star Game. New York’s two NBA teams, along with several others, have submitted bids to host the extravaganza. The League has yet to make a decision (next year’s ASG will be played in New Orleans.) Per the NY Daily News: “NBA officials say New York’s two teams are among several cities to have formally submitted bids to host All-Star weekend in two years. According to the NBA, no decision has been made on where the game will be played, and there will be no announcement on the winner this weekend. The Knicks last hosted All-Star weekend in 1998, while the only time the game was hosted by the Nets was in 1982 at the Meadowlands. The Garden spent nearly $1 billion to renovate the World’s Most Famous Arena, in hopes that it will be able to land the NBA’s midseason showcase event. But Brooklyn also wants the game to be played in its new Barclays Center.”

    I really don’t want it in Brooklyn AT ALL. I’m fine if it’s in the city, but people don’t understand how residential the neighborhoods around the Barclay’s are. No one wants all that traffic and extra people where they live.

    as much as i would love to see it return to nyc i was under the impression lord stern said after minny i would never be in a cold weather city again! i know nyc is the exception. i can see miami! that makes the most sense to be honest!

    Since my Bulls ownership is too dumb and said they don’t want to do it, I think I’d like it in San Fran.

    Brooklyn already won that bid. If there’s anything the NBA loves, it’s shiny, new, billion-dollar arenas.

    I think Toronto should get a chance to host a NBA All-Star Game, they have had a team for quite a while compared to Brooklyn and is much bigger than New Orleans.

    NYC would be awesome! Just ignore our crappy weather before/after the games.
    Let’s Go Knicks!
