Nets, Knicks willing to split All-Star Weekend in 2015?

Debby Wong-USA TODAY Sports

David Stern has said it's very likely that the 2015 NBA All-Star Game will be played in New York, but he didn't say which borough and gleefully noted that it will be Adam Silver, his successor who will have to make the Solomonic decision.

Now, AP is reporting that the two teams may make a joint bid for the Game and its individual competitions. Silver says the league is holding discussions with both New York teams and they are open to a joint bid. There isn't that much bad blood between the franchises, but enough to make it difficult on some issues.

Silver said Friday during a conference call that the league would divide its events between the two sites. He didn't say who would get the the All-Star game, which is played on Sunday night. The Rookie Challenge is played on Friday and the slam dunk and 3-point contests are part of All-Star Saturday night.
