The NBA All-Stars are back in New York!
New York City is hosting the All-Star festivities once again! It will be a fun filled, action packed, and exciting weekend for the city. All the clubs, bars, and lounges will be filled to capacity to host celebrities and the NBA stars alike in addition to the All-Star weekend events. The last time New York hosted this event was 17 years ago when we witnessed the emergence of new All-Stars such as Kobe Bryant, Kevin Garnett, and Tim Duncan. Now with an illustrious career and a place in the Hall of Fame in their near future, they have now passed the torch to the likes of Anthony Davis, Blake Griffin, Kyrie Irving, and John Wall. Time has indeed flown by. It’s hard to picture Tim Duncan and Kobe Bryant as the old sages now. But that’s the beauty of generations. Each one has something exciting to give to the world! And now, the world watches along with New York as these new superstars take the court!
