Knicks, Nets to co-host 2015 NBA All-Star festivities in New York
Community and fan events will be held in all five boroughs as the All-Star game comes to New York for the fifth time. That could be the league’s solution to a couple of obstacles that remain, such as the inability to satisfy season-ticket holders for two teams, and the unavailability of the Javits Center that weekend to host the Jam Session.
“The notion was, this is in many ways the basketball capital of the world. There’s so much enormous passion and interest in the game throughout New York City, let’s find a way to extend it beyond the actual events in the arena,” Silver said. “So that’s why we’ve been working with these two organizations on figuring out the best way to build it out and make it into a week festival.”
