NBA All-Star Weekend
NBA All-Star Weekend includes a number of fun and exciting exhibition games and competitions featuring NBA players and alumni, WNBA players and the NBA Development League (D-League). From the fun All-Star Weekend Celebrity Game—featuring retired NBA players, WNBA players, athletes from other sports, musicians and actors—to the fan-favorite Slam Dunk Contest, there is plenty for basketball fans to cheer about.
2018 NBA All Star Game
The NBA All-Star Game is arguably the biggest crowd pleaser, pitting the star players from the Eastern Conference against the best of the Western Conference. With dance music and flashy lights accompanying player intros, plenty of alley oops and sensational slam dunks, and musical performances at half time, the Sunday match-up attracts a big audience.
Part of what drives the excitement of the All Star game is that the fans have the chance to vote for the starters of the game. Prior to 2013, fans selected two forwards and one center from each conference. In 2013, fans chose two guards and three front-court players. NBA coaches vote for the reserves—including two wildcards—but can’t chose players from their own team. Be there to see the NBA's best talent all on the floor at the same time. Don't miss the high flying action live!
