New York To Host 2015 All-Star Game

The city of New York will host the 2015 NBA All-Star Game, NBA commissioner David Stern and deputy commissioner Adam Silver announced during their Saturday media availability (link via Howard Beck of the New York Times). The Knicks' home arena, Madison Square Garden, has put in a bid to host the weekend, as has the Nets' new Barclays Center in Brooklyn, and Silver said Saturday that one of the two arenas will get it.

The 2014 All-Star game will be hosted by New Orleans. It will be the first All-Star weekend under Silver, who is expected to take over as commissioner after Stern steps down.
