“The N.B.A. is expected to announce Wednesday that New York will host the All-Star Game in 2015. The hosting of the annual event will be shared by the Knicks and the Nets, who will hold events in Manhattan and in Brooklyn. Adam Silver, the league’s deputy commissioner, said in February that one of the New York teams would be awarded the game. A person with knowledge of Wednesday’s announcement said that the game would take place at Madison Square Garden and that many of the weekend’s other events — the dunk contest, the 3-point shooting contest and the skills challenge — would be held at Barclays Center.”
