The best of the best will do battle for bragging rights during the 2019 All Star Game when the top players from the Eastern Conference take on Western Conference’s finest at the Staples Center in Los Angles, California, and you can enjoy this great NBA action online or stream the game live to an eligible mobile device.
NBA All Star Weekend 2019
All-Star weekend starts on Saturday the 16 of February here in Australia with the All-Star Celebrity game at 11:00am Sydney time (to air on ESPN), a match that will feature a mix of actors, musicians, current team owners and former players. Among the notable names are actor Mike Colter, NFL great Steve Smith and Hall of Famer Ray Allen. Immediately following the Celebrity game will be the NBA Rising Stars Challenge, which will include Australia’s very own Ben Simmons – who will also suit up for the All-Star game itself – star rookie Luka Doncic, and last year’s number one pick Deandre Ayton.
The 2019 NBA All Stars action then moves to Sunday the 17 of February (AEDT), starting off with the Skills Challenge, which sees players face each other in an obstacle course that showcases ball handling, dribbling and shooting. Some famous names have won this, including Steve Nash, Dwayne Wade and Stephen Curry. Following this will be the ever popular Three Point Contest, where all eyes will be on Curry, the greatest shooter of all time. The final event on day is the Slam Dunk Contest, something that is nearly as big as the All Star game itself, with a highlight reel that will replayed over and over for years to come.
The third and final day of the weekend (Monday AEDT) is all about the All Star Game, the 68th edition. Giannis Antetokounmpo will captain the Eastern Conference and Lebron James will captain the Western Conference. This will be the 15th All Star game for James, a record among active players. Be ready for some awesome dunks, dazzling passes and high octane offense, but don’t look for the 2019 NBA All Star game Free to Air in Australia.
