In the past, the All-Star Weekend has been full of moments NBA fans will remember for ages. Michael Jordan's iconic slam dunk contest dual with Dominic Wilkins in 1988 has become one of the most memorable moments in history. In more recent memory, there was the game in 2001, when Allen Iverson lead the East from down 21 points in the fourth quarter, to defeat the West 111-110. Or even just last year, when Kobe Bryant and LeBron James went at it in the final minutes of the game.
Overall, some of the greatest moments in NBA history occur during All-Star Weekend, and NBA fans hope for much of the same in 2014. The location certainly won't be disappointing, as the events will be held in exciting city of New Orleans, La.
The NBA has gone through many changes recently, the largest of which is the recent retirement of commissioner David Stern. All-Star Weekend is also among the changes taking place in the league, as there are several new formats this year, making the weekend schedule jam-packed with excitement.
