Anyone who wishes to attend the NBA All-Star Game in the near future can start booking hotel reservations now.

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.

Here are the future NBA All-Star Game locations for the next three seasons:

2021 NBA All-Star Game: February 14, 2021, Bankers Life Fieldhouse, Indianapolis, Indiana

2022 NBA All-Star Game: February 20, 2022, Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse, Cleveland, Ohio

2023 NBA All-Star Game: February 19, 2023, Vivint Smart Home Arena, Salt Lake City, Utah

It will be the second time hosting the NBA All-Star Game for Indianapolis, but the first in Bankers Life Fieldhouse since they haven't hosted since they played at the Hoosier Dome in 1985. It's also the second time hosting for Rocket Morgage FieldHouse, known in 1997 as Gund Arena, and the second time hosting for Vivint Smart Home Arena, which last hosted in 1993 as the Delta Center.

The league’s deals with Disney and TNT, worth $24 billion over nine years, do not expire until after the 2024-25 season, but it is never too soon in coronavirus times to re-establish oneself as an exemplary partner. The N.B.A., for all the criticism it has absorbed in recent days, is certainly on a winning streak there, from conceiving a bubble to safely usher the 2019-20 season to a conclusion … to engineering that bubble at Walt Disney World as opposed to Las Vegas or any other interested city … to this All-Star save. I’m told Phoenix was proposed as a potential venue for March 7. Holding it in Atlanta instead would put the game in TNT’s backyard, eliminating travel for its coverage crews.

Marc Stein: The Hawks’ State Farm Arena is emerging as the likely All-Star Game site, sources say. Discussions continue on various All-Star fronts but momentum is indeed building for a dunk contest and 3-point contest to be attached to the March 7 All-Star Game.

Shams Charania: The NBA and NBPA have agreed to host the All-Star Game on March 7 in Atlanta, sources tell @TheAthletic @Stadium. Sides are finalizing details of the plan as soon as Thursday.

Marc Stein: The NBA will institute All~Star voting this season with or without a game, sources say Proposals for staging an actual All-Star game include holding it on an HBCU campus in the Atlanta area in the March 6-7 range

And yet as Indiana Pacers leaders converged on the windy city to wrap up their final leg of homework this weekend before Indy hosts the All-Star Game next year, they couldn’t help but remember all those 35 years ago. “We had some great parties, got through six inches of snow,” said Rick Fuson, who was the Indiana Pacers’ operational lead for the 1985 NBA All-Star Game in the Hoosier Dome. “But we want this time around to be an All-Star game like none the NBA has ever seen.”

Larry Bird was one of the the city’s biggest advocates for an NBA All-Star Game return. The last time Indy hosted, Bird played in the game representing the Boston Celtics. “Back in 1985, there wasn’t nearly as much to it,” said Bird, now a consultant with the Pacers front office, after the city landed the event. “Now, the All-Star game is a spectacle. Every venue we have Downtown will be full. People will be excited, I think it will be fantastic. We’re going to put on a great show.”

Plans to re-create a fan experience like the city saw when it hosted the 2012 Super Bowl are already in the works, said Fuson. “If it’s weather that is 20 degrees and sunny, people will shoot baskets,” he said. “And they’ll drink a beer and have a cocktail. We’ve proven that before and it will happen again.” Downtown, well, it will look so different from what it did in 1985. “I remember in the late ’70s when I used to come Downtown at 9 o’clock when there was no place to eat, not many people walking around downtown,” said Bird. “This city has come a long way in the last 30 years. I’m very proud of it. I know a lot of residents are, too.” Fuson said all 6,700 hotel rooms Downtown will be used for the event next year.

Trae Young was asked Saturday if he’d like to see the NBA All-Star game in Oklahoma City some day. “It’d be super fun to get an All-Star game out in OKC,” the Hawks guard and former Sooner said. “Being able to go back home and play in front of them would be fun. I think they gotta get maybe one or two more hotels to be able to get it going.”

After an intense hike in the mountains around Heber City, Utah, Karl Malone stopped into one of his local businesses and received some interesting news. Someone working there told “The Mailman” that Salt Lake City would host NBA All-Star Weekend in 2023. The scoop beat the official announcement last Wednesday by a few hours. His first reaction? “It’s about damn time,” Malone told ESPN.

He sees this new game as an opportunity to clear up many misconceptions about the state. “Look, we’re gonna see the same host of characters that go to every All-Star Game, and they’re gonna put all the celebrities on the front row which is bulls— by the way, but the thing about it is to be able to be at home and showing people our city and not the stereotype of, ‘Aw, it’s Utah. Oh, it’s the Mormons,’ but ‘Hey, it’s Baptist, Catholic, Jewish, and just a whole smorgasbord of religions, races and ethnicities’ but it’s got that rep,” Malone said. “Everybody is quick to say, ‘Oh, I don’t know about Utah, because you can’t find alcohol,’ but first of all it’s a state liquor store on every corner and then on the flip side of it, hell, bring your own. “It’s just that stereotype but it’s amazing and I just smile and I couldn’t help but say, ‘It’s about damn time that it came back,'” he added. “So, even though I’m not involved in it at this point, I’m just so happy.”

Just hours before the Trail Blazers kicked off their season against the Denver Nuggets, team president and CEO Chris McGowan discussed Utah getting the nod and the possibility of Portland hosting All-Star Weekend in interviews with both KGW and NBC Sports Northwest. “I think it’s great. I love to see smaller cities get it. They’re doing lots of amazing things in Utah. They have a great president, it’s a great city. It’s going to be a little bit different flavor wise for an All-Star game. It’s close to Portland which is nice, I don’t have to travel too far for it. I think it’s great when different cities get big events. It’s going to be very meaningful for that community.”

Mark Medina: Salt Lake City to host the NBA All-Star game in 2023. All-Star game this season will be in Chicago. Then in Indianapolis (2021) and Cleveland (2022).

Will we see an NBA all-star game in the near future overseas? Mark Tatum: It’s a good question. I would never say never. I would say nothing is planned in the foreseeable future. We actually have our All-Star games planned out pretty far out. There’s such demand, certainly overseas, but there’s demand from our NBA teams to host the All-Star game as well.

Marla Ridenour: After NBA All-Star 2022 announcement

Sacramento Kings statement: “Our inaugural bid to host an All-Star Game showcased that our city can compete to host world-class events and is truly a community on the rise. While the NBA recognizes that the city and the fans would provide a unique and exciting experience, combined with our efforts to introduce innovative partnerships with Airbnb and luxury cruise ships, the city does not yet have the inventory of hotel rooms that meet the NBA specifications to host this event. While it is a disappointing result, we are excited about the future and a bright path ahead for Kings basketball. “This city is built on basketball and as the ripple effects of Golden 1 Center continue to spur downtown’s growth and evolution – with a renovated convention center, more world-class hotel accommodations to come and a bustling downtown core – we will once again make our case for Sacramento to welcome basketball fans from around the globe to celebrate the NBA’s marquee weekend.

Cleveland is about to land another major event. Multiple sources have told Crain’s that the NBA and the Cleveland Cavaliers soon will announce that Quicken Loans Arena will host an NBA All-Star Game. The announcement, sources said, could occur as soon as Thursday, Nov. 1. The earliest the NBA All-Star festivities could be held at The Q is 2022. In December 2016, when The Q’s transformation plan was first unveiled, the league said it looked forward to hosting its “week of NBA All-Star events in Cleveland in the near future.” The announcement, the league said, would be contingent upon the completion of The Q’s renovation project.

Cleveland, should it land the 2022 game, would be the host city for the 75th NBA All-Star event. That year would also mark the 25th anniversary of the 1997 All-Star Game being held at The Q, which at the time was in its third season. Regardless, Cleveland, according to sources, is going to get the All-Star Game in the near future. The Cavs aren’t commenting on a potential announcement, and the NBA hasn’t responded to multiple requests for comment. David Gilbert, the president and CEO of the Greater Cleveland Sports Commission, told Crain’s in a text message on Friday, Oct. 26, that he couldn’t discuss anything “right now. But we should be hearing something soon.”

“I think the economic infusion is much like that of a Super Bowl, it is a big deal,” Feigin said. Feigin said the arena also has its eyes on a variety of other events and conventions. Aside from the Democratic National Convention 2020 bid, he said they’re after NCAA Tournaments and other national events.

“(Joel) was actually talking about it before, he thinks we should have an All-Star game over here,” Simmons told reporters after the Sixers’ 120-114 win over Dallas on Friday. “I think that would be amazing.” Does Chang think that could happen one day? “Hypothetically, it’s a great idea and we would love to have that here,” he said. “I don’t think I’m in a position to sit here and really fully understand what the logistical implications are to get something like that to happen.”

NBA legends Rip Hamilton and Chauncey Billups visited London this week, as tickets for the 2019 NBA London Game will go on sale on October 19. The two NBA legends talked about the 2019 NBA London Game between the Washington Wizards and the New York Knicks. The match will take place at the O2 Arena on January 17. They also referred to London hosting the NBA All-Star Game in the upcoming years as well as LeBron James and Michael Jordan. “It could! Now that they’ve extended the All-Star break,” Hamilton said regarding London hosting the NBA All-Star Game. “London is a great city, it kind of reminds me of New York, so there is a lot of great opportunities here and I think guys would be super excited to travel here to Europe, so I think it will be something that would be pretty cool,” he added.

The earliest the NBA All-Star Game could potentially return to Orlando is 2024, the Orlando Sentinel has learned. Orlando Magic CEO Alex Martins said Sunday the Magic put in a bid to host the 2023 All-Star Weekend and have been informed by league officials that another location will be selected for that year.

Los Angeles was the host of 67th NBA All-Star Game last weekend. Could Salt Lake City be in the picture next? Fans will have to wait and see. After months of planning, the Utah Jazz have submitted a formal bid to the league to host an All-Star Game in 2022 or 2023. The Jazz have partnered with the state of Utah, Salt Lake City, Salt Lake County, Utah Sports Commission, Visit Salt Lake and the Utah Office of Tourism to strengthen the case of Vivint Arena as a proposed site.

An outdoor amphitheater on Capitol Mall. Autonomous vehicles shuttling tourists from Sacramento International Airport to Golden 1 Center. A waterfront festival along the Port of Sacramento accommodating hundreds of people staying on luxury cruise ships. Sacramento’s bid to host the NBA All-Star Game in 2022 or 2023 is a mix of high-tech flash and outside-the-box concepts aimed at bolstering a proposal seen by many as a long shot. The bid, revealed to The Sacramento Bee late Wednesday, will be formally introduced Thursday at a press conference outside Golden 1 Center and delivered to the NBA the following day. The bid package will include virtual reality tours of event spaces and testimonials from team officials, local political leaders and former Kings legends.

The Sacramento Kings and the city of Sacramento are finalizing a bid to land the NBA All-Star Game in either 2022 or 2023, team and city officials said Thursday. The City Council will vote on Tuesday on providing “general support” for the All-Star bid, which will include an entertainment pavilion on Capitol Mall, cruise ships to host out of town guests and dedicated traffic lanes for visitors.

Kings owner and chairman Vivek Ranadive said in a written statement that more details on the bid will be announced next week and that the team will present its bid to the NBA on Feb. 23. “Golden 1 Center has been a great spark for the city and building on that momentum, we have assembled an unprecedented plan to host a global celebration of basketball at the All-Star Game in Sacramento,” Ranadive said in a written statement.

The Milwaukee Bucks and local officials are making a full-court press to land the NBA All-Star Game. It’s not a long shot on the basketball front — the Bucks are shooting for 2022 or 2023 and their new $524 million arena opens this fall.

When Fred Whitfield is not standing in his usual spot in the tunnel of the Spectrum Center at Charlotte Hornets games, Hall of Famer Michael Jordan probably figures that his close friend and business confidant is making an impression somewhere off the court. Whitfield is Hornets Sports & Entertainment’s chief operating officer, president and minority owner and oversees all business operations. The North Carolina native represented the organization’s efforts to secure the 2017 NBA All-Star Game and re-secure the game in 2019 after the controversial House Bill 2 (HB2) was repealed last year. His efforts have quietly played a major role in keeping the Hornets in Charlotte and sports entertainment afloat in the Spectrum Center.

Whitfield worked behind the scenes to push to repeal HB2 with the Hornets’ business and goodwill in mind. Whitfield’s work didn’t go unnoticed, as the Charlotte Chamber of Commerce named him the 2017 Economic Growth Champion of the Year. Whitfield told The Undefeated that if HB2 hadn’t been repealed, the Hornets might have been forced to move from North Carolina for financial reasons and because of a potential lack of sports and entertainment events at the Spectrum Center. Silver has said that although the repeal of HB2 “did not go far enough, we believe the recent legislation eliminates the most egregious aspects of the prior law.” Silver said he is also confident that the Hornets will “set equality principles to ensure that every All-Star event will proceed with open access and anti-discrimination policies.” Silver saluted Whitfield for playing a big role in getting the NBA All-Star Game back in Charlotte.

The Jazz are preparing to formally submit a bid during the next two to three weeks to host the festivities in 2022 or 2023. “We like 2023 because it’ll be 30 years since we hosted so we like the symmetry of that,” said Jazz president Steve Starks. “We’ve been working with the league on that so it’s something we’re excited to do with the investments into the organization and into facilities,” he added.

Jazz executive Don Stirling, VP of community and special events Kari Holt Larson, and Clay Partain of Visit Salt Lake have been heavily involved in putting together a compelling bid. The goal is to tell the unique story of Salt Lake City while dispelling some misconceptions. “Compared to 30 years ago, our infrastructure is completely different,” said Starks. “So, the number of hotel rooms, we can check that box. The airport will be completed by then so we’ll have a billion dollar-plus renovation to the airport, we’ll have TRAX even further mature than it is now.”

KC Johnson: Adam Silver on Chicago 2020 ASG: “There actually was a lot of competition. And I think what put Chicago over the top was the plan the city had put together. And Mayor Emanuel was very persuasive.”

Nick Friedell: Bulls send out a release saying a major announcement will be made tomorrow at the United Center. Adam Silver, Rahm Emanuel and others expected to be in attendance along with Bulls personnel.

The 18,000-seat, privately financed multi-purpose arena that will include a public plaza is currently under construction. It will be located in the Mission Bay neighborhood of San Francisco. The Warriors believe the new venue will be a world-class destination, and plan to host many of the most prominent entertainment events on the calendar each year.

Houston’s bid to host the 2020 or 2021 NBA All-Star Game has been eliminated from consideration. However, the league encouraged Janis Burke, CEO of the Harris County-Houston Sports Authority, to bid again in the future.

“I think they want to just give some other cities an opportunity, but told us to come back and bid for the next round.” The next round would begin when the NBA focuses on future games like the 2022 NBA All-Star Game. “I think when the NBA encourages you to bid again, that means they like what they saw,” Burke said.

The Charlotte Hornets released the following statement today: “We are excited that the NBA has once again made the City of Charlotte eligible to host All-Star Weekend in 2019. We look forward to resuming our discussions with the league on the next steps regarding this international event. We know that our city, our fans and our business community remain extremely enthusiastic in support of hosting NBA All-Star Weekend.”

“The Charlotte Hornets and Hornets Sports & Entertainment remain opposed to discrimination of any form. As we always have, we will continue to provide an inclusive environment for anyone attending an event at Spectrum Center.”

The NBA will consider awarding a future All-Star Game to North Carolina now that the state has partially repealed the anti-LGBT law known as the bathroom bill. The league pulled the 2017 All-Star Game from Charlotte after the law was enacted. New Orleans hosted it instead. At the time, the NBA said it hoped to take the game back to Charlotte in 2019 “provided there is an appropriate resolution to this matter.” The NBA board of governors will meet Thursday and consider whether the partial repeal is good enough, a source familiar with the matter told CNNMoney. An announcement is not expected. Los Angeles will host the 2018 game.

The person tells The Associated Press that the NBA board was already planning to discuss the matter at its meeting Thursday, though it’s not known if a decision will be made. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the board’s agenda is not publicized. The league pulled this year’s All-Star event out of Charlotte and it went to New Orleans instead. The NBA had it said it hoped the All-Star game could go to Charlotte in 2019 if changes were made to a North Carolina law that limited anti-discrimination protections for lesbian, gay and transgender people.

There are no plans for the City of Boston to host an All-Star Game although the league’s spring classic has not been held in Boston in 53 years. The NBA has been seeking cities to host the game — it is returning to Los Angeles in 2018 after a seven-year absence — but Gotham said Boston has not applied. The question is why. “I wouldn’t say no interest at all,” Gotham said. “I would just say as far as the priorities for the organization go, it just hasn’t risen to the top.”

After announcing in July that this All-Star event would be moved, in essence, the law isn’t consistent with the league’s values, Silver has expressed his desire to return to Charlotte in 2019 if it is changed. “We’d very much like to get back there,” Silver said. “We had a discussion (Silver and North Carolina governor Roy Cooper) so I understood, certainly, his position, when he was running for office, was anti-HB2, the bill that ultimately led to our leaving. So I really was talking to him more to understand, from his standpoint, how he was hoping to move forward in terms of changing that law. My main purpose of talking to him was to express our desire to return next year.

It is one of many issues drawing the attention of both the league and its players, with many NBA stars — including LeBron James — speaking out repeatedly of late about the need for equality in society. And Silver, while not going as far to say that considering such a law would keep Texas from being considered for All-Star events in the future, made clear that the NBA is watching. Next year’s All-Star weekend is in Los Angeles. Texas last hosted an All-Star weekend in 2013. “I’m not ready to draw bright lines,” Silver said. “Clearly, though, the laws of the state, ordinances, and cities are a factor we look at in deciding where to play our All-Star Games.”

As Texas lawmakers mull a controversial transgender “bathroom bill” similar to North Carolina’s law that outraged top sports leagues, the NBA said Thursday that making sure its fans are treated “fairly and equally” is a key factor in determining which states it chooses to host key events – including future NBA All-Star Games. Entitled “Texas Senate Bill 6,” the proposed measure would require transgender individuals to use public bathrooms in accordance with the gender listed on their birth certificates. “We consider a wide range of factors when making decisions about host locations for league-wide events like the All-Star Game – foremost among them is ensuring the environment where those who participate and attend are treated fairly and equally,” NBA spokesman Mike Bass said in a statement to FOX Business.

The Orlando Magic intend to submit bids to host the NBA All-Star Game in 2020 or 2021, Magic CEO Alex Martins said. At a press conference before the NBA’s regular-season game in London on Jan. 12, NBA Commissioner Adam Silver said league officials released the bid specs for the 2020 and 2021 All-Star Games during the first week of this month.

Fuson added that it’s too early to speculate on the costs of hosting the event. For the city and team, they can be significant. While the NBA pays for a chunk of game operations, many costs fall to the host city and team, including enhanced security surrounding the weekend’s events, much of the marketing, myriad signage required all around town, transportation and operating the local organizing committee. Their costs run in multiple millions of dollars, said Marc Ganis, a Chicago-based sports business consultant who counts several NBA teams as clients. The host team alone would likely ring up expenses between $3 million and $9 million in the two- to three-year run-up to the game, Ganis said.

The Rockets are preparing a bid to host either the 2020 or 2021 NBA All Star game and week-long All Star related events, a person with knowledge of the process said on Friday. The individual spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the private nature of the bid process. The league recently sent teams information related to bids, opening the process to select host cities.

Bidding for the 2020 and 2021 games is expected to be made more competitive with new NBA venues in Sacramento and Detroit likely to be considered, especially if Sacramento can offer plans to provide enough hotel space. Indianapolis has also indicated interest. Houston hosted the All Star game and related events in 2013 and 2006 in Toyota Center and the 1989 game in the Astrodome.

Amid deepening acrimony, a supposedly bipartisan deal to kill the North Carolina law known as the “bathroom bill” fell apart Wednesday night, ensuring the likelihood that global corporations and national sports events will continue to stay away from the state. The law limits protections for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people and is best known for a provision that requires transgender people to use public restrooms corresponding to the gender on their birth certificates. It was passed earlier this year, after Charlotte officials approved a sweeping antidiscrimination ordinance. “The NCAA’s decision to withhold championships from North Carolina remains unchanged,” said NCAA spokesman Bob Williams in a statement. An NBA league source told ESPN’s Andy Katz that its stance in withholding the All-Star Game from Charlotte also had not changed.

Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan asked about it. So did Pistons owner Tom Gores. Even the Ilitch family inquired. And Silver’s listening. “I would think it greatly enhances their chance to get an All-Star game,” Silver said after Tuesday’s announcement. “My goal is to come to every city that wants us, and especially — I think we’ve said this many times at our board of governors meetings — when new buildings come on line, they deserve to get All-Star games.”

The earliest Detroit could host an NBA All-Star Game would be 2019, and even that would be a stretch. Los Angeles’ Staples Center is already booked for 2018 and Silver has said Charlotte, North Carolina, is a priority for 2019 after the league pulled the 2017 game from the city to protest a controversial piece of legislation. “There’s a process for bidding, and I’m sure Tom and Arn (Tellem) and Stan (Van Gundy) and others will focus on it,” Silver said. “But I look forward to coming back here for an All-Star game.”

The 2018 NBA All-Star Game was an exhibitionbasketball game that was played on February 18, 2018, during the National Basketball Association's (NBA) 2017–18 season. It was the 67th edition of the NBA All-Star Game, and was played at Staples Center in Los Angeles, California, home of the Los Angeles Lakers and Los Angeles Clippers. Team LeBron defeated Team Stephen, 148–145. LeBron James, namesake of Team LeBron, was named the All-Star Game Most Valuable Player for recording 29 points, 10 rebounds, and 8 assists; it was his third time winning the award since the 2008 All-Star Game. This was the sixth time that Los Angeles had hosted the NBA All-Star Game and the first time since 2011.[2] The game was televised nationally by TNT for the 16th consecutive year.

Format change[edit]

On October 3, 2017, the NBA announced that the All-Star Game format would change from the traditional Eastern Conference versus Western Conference format, and would instead switch to a draft-style format, similar to the format used by the NHLAll-Star Game from 2011 through 2015 and the NFLPro Bowl from 2014 through 2016. The team captains were determined by the most votes received in their respective conference. Each team will pick a charity to play for, and the winning team will have money donated to their charity.[3] The winning team will receive $100,000 for each player and the losing team $25,000 each.[4]

Dwane Casey (left) and Mike D'Antoni (right) were selected as head coach for Team LeBron and Team Stephen, respectively.

The two teams were coached from their respective conference.[5]Mike D'Antoni, coach of the Houston Rockets, was named as the head coach for Team Stephen.[6]Dwane Casey, coach of the Toronto Raptors, was named as the head coach for Team LeBron.[7]


The rosters for the All-Star Game were selected through a voting process. The starters were chosen by the fans, media, and current NBA players. Fans make up 50% of the vote, and NBA players and media each comprise 25% of the vote. The two guards and three frontcourt players who receive the highest cumulative vote totals are named the All-Star starters.[8] NBA head coaches vote for the reserves for their respective conferences, none of which can be players on their own team. Each coach selects two guards, three frontcourt players and two wild cards, with each selected player ranked in order of preference within each category. If a multi-position player is to be selected, coaches are encouraged to vote for the player at the position that was "most advantageous for the All-Star team", regardless of where the player was listed on the All-Star ballot or the position he was listed in box scores.

The All-Star Game starters were announced on January 18, 2018.[9]Kyrie Irving of the Boston Celtics and DeMar DeRozan of the Toronto Raptors were named the backcourt starters in the East, earning their fifth and fourth all-star appearances, respectively. LeBron James was named a starter to his 14th career all-star game, breaking Dirk Nowitzki's record for most selections among active players. Joining James in the East frontcourt was Joel Embiid of the Philadelphia 76ers, his first selection, and Giannis Antetokounmpo of the Milwaukee Bucks, his second selection.

Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors and James Harden of the Houston Rockets were named to the starting backcourt in the West, earning their fifth and sixth all-star appearances, respectively. In the frontcourt, Kevin Durant of the Golden State Warriors was named to his ninth career all-star game, along with DeMarcus Cousins and Anthony Davis of the New Orleans Pelicans, their fourth and fifth all-star selections, respectively.[9] During the All-Star Game, Davis would wear his teammate Cousins' jersey as a means of honoring him after his season-ending injury occurred before the All-Star Game began.

The All-Star Game reserves were announced on January 23, 2018.[10] The West reserves include Russell Westbrook of the Oklahoma City Thunder, his seventh selection, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green of the Golden State Warriors, their fourth and third all-star selections, respectively, LaMarcus Aldridge of the San Antonio Spurs, his sixth selection, Damian Lillard of the Portland Trail Blazers, his third selection, and Karl-Anthony Towns and Jimmy Butler of the Minnesota Timberwolves, their first and fourth all-star selections, respectively. Westbrook would later be named the replacement starter for DeMarcus Cousins' open starting spot on the team.

The East reserves include Kyle Lowry of the Toronto Raptors, his fourth selection, Al Horford of the Boston Celtics, his fifth selection, John Wall and Bradley Beal of the Washington Wizards, their fifth and first all-star selections, respectively, Victor Oladipo of the Indiana Pacers, his first selection, Kevin Love of the Cleveland Cavaliers, his fifth selection, and Kristaps Porzingis of the New York Knicks, his first selection.


LeBron James and Stephen Curry were named as captains due to being the leading vote getter from the East and West, respectively. James had the first pick in the draft as the leading vote getter overall, while Curry has first choice of jersey color, due to the Western Conference having home team status for the game. The draft pool consisted of the eight other starters, with no regard to conference designation, and 14 reserves (seven from each conference), chosen by NBA head coaches.[9] On January 25, 2018, LeBron James and Stephen Curry created their rosters via a draft, which would not be televised for various reasons. NBA Commissioner Adam Silver will select the replacement for any player unable to participate in the All-Star Game, choosing a player from the same conference as the player who is being replaced. Silver's selection would join the team that drafted the replaced player. If a replaced player is a starter, the head coach of that team will choose a new starter from his cast of players instead.[5]

National anthem[edit]

Fergie's performance of "The Star-Spangled Banner" prior to the game received heavy negative criticism and mockery online.[20][21] The rendition—described as "unusual" and "bizarre"—was met with laughter from the arena crowd, and All-Star Draymond Green was shown chuckling on the television broadcast.[22][23] The following day, Fergie said she "wanted to try something special for the NBA," but it "didn't strike the intended tone."[24]
