2015 All-Star Game to be Played in NYC?
The N.B.A. All-Star Game is returning to New York in 2015, to a borough yet to be determined.
Both Madison Square Garden and the new Barclays Center in Brooklyn have applied to host the 2015 game, Commissioner David Stern said Saturday. No other cities are currently under consideration, making it a near certainty that New York will host the game.
“This is terrific,” Stern said, referring to the dueling New York applications.
Asked if one of the league’s New York arenas would end up with the game, Adam Silver, the deputy commissioner, responded with a simple “Yes.”
The 2014 All-Star Game will be in New Orleans.
