The New York Knicks-Brooklyn Nets rivalry is about to get a whole lot more interesting. Both teams have put in bids for the 2015 All-Star Game, and because of their arena situations – MSG recently being renovated and the brand new Barclays Center – NBA deputy commissioner, Adam Silver says it’s “likely” it will be in one of the two boroughs. The Knicks last hosted an All-Star Game in 1998 while the Nets hosted it last in 1982. Silver said there’s no timeframe for a decision to be made.
David Stern during press conference before All-Star Saturday night:
“There are two applications, one from Brooklyn and one from the Garden and I really think that commissioner Silver is going to have a great time with those applications. I’ve asked him to send me a postcard to tell me how it goes.”
