NBA All-Star Weekend is the league’s opportunity to showcase its brightest and best stars.
The weekend has brought us many iconic basketball moments over the years, from Michael Jordan taking off from the free throw line in 1988 and Magic Johnson’s memorable All-Star Game MVP performance in 1992, to to Vince Carter setting a standard for dunk competition that will likely never be beaten.
Not to mention the late Kobe Bryant’s four All-Star Game MVPs, tying him with Bob Pettit for the most ever.
NBA All-Star Weekend is also an opportunity for players to get away from the regular season routine and have fun with their contemporaries.
The NBA has done a great job rotating accommodation duties in cities across the United States over the years. The first All-Star Game was held at the old Boston Garden in 1951 while the most recent was in Cleveland.
