Next Battleground for Nets-Knicks: Who Gets 2014 All-Star Game

The NBA on Wednesday awarded the 2013 All-Star Game to the Houston Rockets. The mid-season classic will be Sunday, Feb. 17, 2013 at the Toyota Center, which will also host the NBA Rising Stars Challenge and NBA All-Star Saturday Night, which includes the dunk and three-point shooting contest and skills challenge.

So who gets the 2014 game ... and accompanying weekend? Since the NBA often rewards teams and cities that have made big financial commitments to new arenas, word is that Barclays Center and the renovated Madison Square Garden will be at the top of the list.

"We are in the big event business, and the All-Star Game certainly would be classified as a big event," Brett Yormark recently told Big Lead Sports. "Our goal is to be aggressive to host every big event that we can."

But a league source reports that New York may have already told the NBA it cannot support the All-Star game. It would come only two weeks after the 2014 Super Bowl, which will be held in MetLife Stadium.
