All-star weekend is coming to NYC, let the games begin.
You heard right! The NBA All-star weekend is coming to New York City in 2015! The Daily News posted the logo Wednesday morning, stating that the 2015 celeb filled weekend was coming on February 15. The logo was said to be inspired by the public transportation signs in New York.
This will be the fifth NBA All-star game in New York but the first time it will be shared by two boroughs. The Friday and Saturday events which include the Slam Dunk and 3-point contests will be held in the Barclays Center, while the All-star game will be held in Madison Square Garden. The agreement to split the All-Star game gives the Barclay Center eligability to host the main game as early as 2017.
Hopefully this will generate a hefty amount of money for the city like the 2012 NBA All-Star game did for Orlando , where it generated $95 million in revenue for the city.
This is certainly a good look for New York City and you know The Library will be in the mix! Are you excited for basketball season next year? Let us know below!
