NBA is bringing All-Star 2018 back to Los Angeles


The Los Angeles was selected to host NBA All-Star 2018.  The 67th annual game will take place at Staples Center, home of the Los Angeles Lakers and L.A. Clippers, on Sunday, Feb. 18.  This will mark the record sixth NBA All-Star in Los Angeles, which hosted in 2011, 2004, 1983, 1972 and 1963, and the third All-Star at Staples Center (2011 and 2004).

NBA Commissioner Adam Silver made the announcement March 22, 2016 during a press conference at Staples Center, where he was joined by Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, AEG President and CEO Dan Beckerman and Los Angeles Sports & Entertainment Commission President Kathy Schloessman.

NBA All-Star on-court events will tip off on Friday, Feb. 16, at Staples Center with the BBVA Compass Rising Stars Challenge, where the league’s top rookies and second-year players take the court.  On Feb. 17, State Farm All-Star Saturday Night will feature current NBA players showcasing their skills in exciting basketball competitions that include the Taco Bell Skills Challenge, where participants compete head-to-head in a series of passing, shooting and agility drills; the Foot Locker Three-Point Contest; and Verizon Slam Dunk.  The weekend concludes on Sunday with the NBA All-Star Game.

In partnership with AEG, the Los Angeles Sports & Entertainment Commission (LASEC) and the Los Angeles Tourism and Convention Board (LATCB), the NBA will host several events for fans of all ages at venues throughout the city, including the Los Angeles Convention Center and L.A. Live.  These events, including NBA All-Star Practice, the NBA All-Star Celebrity Game presented by Mountain Dew and the NBA Development League All-Star Game presented by Kumho Tire, will feature interactive programming bringing fans closer to NBA and WNBA players and legends.

During NBA All-Star 2018, the NBA will continue to celebrate its tradition and commitment to social responsibility with a full schedule of NBA Cares events.  Through partnerships with schools, government and local nonprofit organizations in Los Angeles and surrounding areas, the league will reach thousands of children and families and provide important resources to community-based programs.

NBA All-Star Game 2018 will be televised in prime time on TNT for the 16th consecutive year, marking Turner Sports’ 33rd year of NBA All-Star coverage.  The game will be broadcast worldwide in more than 200 countries and territories and in more than 40 languages.

NBA All-Star 2016 in Toronto featured the highest-scoring All-Star Game in NBA history; an epic Verizon Slam Dunk won by reigning champion Zach LaVine of the Minnesota Timberwolves; and an exhilarating Foot Locker Three-Point Contest won by the Golden State Warriors’ Klay Thompson, who narrowly beat teammate and 2014-15 Kia NBA MVP Stephen Curry.  NBA All-Star 2017 will take place in Charlotte, N.C.
