The 2023 NBA All-Star Weekend has come to a close in Salt Lake City, Utah. Bringing out the likes of Gabrielle Union, Michael B. Jordan, Burna Boy and many others, Mac McClung, Damian Lillard and company put on a show.
Next year, the NBA’s All-Star Weekend festivities will head to Indianapolis. After that, the Milwaukee Bucks hope to keep the league’s celebration in the midwest. According to Adam Wojnarowski, the Bucks have submitted a bid to host NBA All-Star Weekend in either 2025 or 2026. If successful, it would mark the first time that Milwaukee has hosted the three-day event since 1977.
This is not the first time that the Milwaukee Bucks have made a push to host the NBA All-Star Game. In 2019, a screenshot from Wisconsin sportswriter Keith Keskinen indicated that the city would host NBA All-Star Weekend in 2023. However, the COVID-19 pandemic quickly disrupted the order in which certain cities would be able to host the event.
“It’s no longer a matter of if, just when,” Silver said regarding a potential NBA All-Star Weekend in Milwaukee.
“We just got to pull out calendars and figure out what year makes the most sense.”
ESPN Sources: The Milwaukee Bucks are submitting bids to host either the 2025 or 2026 All-Star Game at Fiserv Forum. Fiserv opened in 2018. Indiana will host the 2024 game.
