Future Nba All Star Weekend Locations

NBA All Star Weekend is always exciting, partly because it is always a good time and partly because it is only once a year. Though this is the case every year, there is a question every fan seems to ask themselves: Will the NBA keep the All-Star Weekend in the same location?


“While we are disappointed that the NBA All-Star Game will not take place in Indianapolis in 2021, we are looking forward to the Pacers and the city hosting the game and surrounding events in 2024,” said NBA Commissioner Adam Silver. “I want to thank Herb Simon, Steve Simon, Rick Fuson and the entire Pacers organization as well as the NBA All-Star 2021 Host Committee and the community of Indianapolis for working with us to reschedule our All-Star activities.”

The 2022 NBA All-Star Game will be an exhibition game played on February 20, 2022. It will be the 71st edition of the event. The game will be hosted by the Cleveland Cavaliers at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse. This will be the third time that the Cleveland area will host the All-Star Game, the first being in 1981 at the Coliseum in nearby Richfield, Ohio, and most recently in 1997—three years after the Cavaliers moved back to downtown Cleveland to play in the newly built Gund Arena which is now known as Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse. Coincidentally, on the occasion Cleveland hosted an All-Star Game, the NBA celebrated its 35th season (1981), 50th anniversary (1997), and 75th anniversary (2022). (Source: en.wikipedia.org)


As had been the case in previous years, the rosters for the All-Star Game were selected through a voting process. The fans could vote through the NBA website as well as through their Google account. The starters were chosen by the fans, media, and current NBA players. Fans made up 50% of the vote, and NBA players and media each comprised 25% of the vote. The two guards and three frontcourt players who received the highest cumulative vote totals in each conferences were named the All-Star starters and two players in each conferences with the highest votes were named team captains.

Assuming none of these dates are forced to be adjust as a result of the continuing COVID-19 pandemic, the NBA has laid out at least the next three seasons for All-Star Game locations. Fans who want to see LeBron James, Anthony Davis and the rest of the biggest stars in the league will want to check out these dates and locations through 2023. (Source: www.nbcsports.com)
