It's time once again for the NBA All Star Game!
Due to the North Carolina Transgender bathroom law, the NBA has decided to boycott the original location at Charlotte NC and move the 2017 NBA All Star Weekend games and festivities to New Orleans in 2017 during Mardi Gras!
And what better place to party?
With NBA All Star voting ending in January, get ready for all the action as the 66th edition of the NBA All Star game takes place at the Smoothie King Center, home of the New Orleans Pelicans, on Sunday February 19, 2017 at 8PM on TNT.
But it's an entire weekend of festvities and entertainment. And it begins with the All Star Celebrity Game on Friday, February 17 on ESPN at 7PM ET, moving on to the ever-popular slam dunk contest during All Star Saturday Night on February 18 on TNT at 8:30PM ET.
Of course, the whole celebration ends with the NBA All Star game on Sunday, February 19, 2017 airing on TNT at 8PM ET. This year, singer John Legend headlines the All Star halftime show.
Tickets for the NBA All Star Game and the NBA All-Star Weekend are available directly from the NBA website, at Smoothie King Center in New Orleans, and Ticketmaster.
