Ready for the big game tonight? Of course, we’re talking about the NBA All-Star Game! If you’re unfamiliar, the big event is an annual basketball game that features the best players from the Eastern and Western conferences of the NBA. It’s the centerpiece of the NBA’s All-Star Weekend, which kicked off on Friday with the All-Star Celebrity Game and also includes events such as the Slam Dunk Contest and the Three-Point Contest.
For this year’s event, we’ll see Team LeBron vs. Team Giannis compete at the Vivint Arena in
Salt Lake City, Utah. This is hardly LeBron’s first rodeo, as his team has won the All-Star Game multiple years in a row. This evening’s event won’t be one to miss, and we’re breaking down when you can tune in below!
