The NBA All-Star Game is reportedly coming to the city in 2015.

According to several reports, the Knicks and Nets will co-host the weekend festivities.

Those reports say that the actual game will be played at Madison Square Garden on February 15, 2015, while the festivities on the day before the game, including the slam dunk contest and the three-point shootout, will reportedly be held at Barclays Center.

The last time the game was held in the city was 1998.

That game featured current Nets coach Jason Kidd, who was playing for the Suns, and forward Kevin Garnett, who was playing for the Timberwolves.

Michael Jordan was the most valuable player.

The New Jersey Nets hosted the game once, in 1992.

The official announcement is expected Wednesday.
