2015 All-Star Game Likely at MSG?
So when will the refurbished Garden finally get its NBA All-Star Game? It won’t be 2014, but you can bet big on 2015, according to sources familiar with the situation.
Once Knicks owner James Dolan kicked off plans for his $800 million Garden transformation, one of the big events he has eyed was bringing the NBA All-Star Game back to New York.
But it has yet to become reality despite recent bids. NBA commissioner David Stern has insisted the transformation be completed before bringing the event to the Big Apple. Stern passed on the Garden for next season, choosing Houston in an announcement made last week.
