One of the most anticipated events of the year, the NBA All-Star Game is set to tip-off on Sunday. The league will host its 70th Annual NBA All-Star Game in State Farm Arena, Georgia, the Atlanta Hawks' home.
The best and most talented players in the league will team up and put on a show for the ages. The two captains are LeBron James and Kevin Durant, and both of them selected their teams on Thursday on TNT.
Unlike most years, there isn't an All-Star Weekend. Instead, the league has jam-packed all the fun into one day. The #TacoBell Skills Challenge and #MtnDew 3-Pt Contest will take place before the All-Star Game, while the #AT&T Slam Dunk Contest will be the half-time spectacle.
Unfortunately, due to the pandemic, there isn't a Celebrity All-Star Game this year.
So without further ado, let's take a look at how you can catch this event live.
When is the NBA All-Star Game 2021?
The 70th Annual NBA All-Star Game is on March 7th, 2021, in Atlanta, Georgia. This will be unlike any other All-Star Game we have seen in the past, as it will be played in an empty arena without fans due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
As mentioned earlier, all the events that made up the All-Star Weekend will now take place on the same day.
