There is a good chance the 2015 NBA All-Star Weekend will be in New York City.

In response to a question about the All-Star festivities likely being at Barclays Center or Madison Square Garden, NBA deputy commissioner Adam Silver said, "Yes." The comment came during Silver and commissioner David Stern's annual All-Star press conference on Saturday at the Toyota Center.

"There are two applications in, one from Brooklyn and one from the Garden," Stern said. "And I really think that Commissioner Silver is going to have a great time with those applications, I really do, and I asked him to send me a postcard to tell me how they go."

The last time All-Star Weekend was held in New York came in 1998 at Madison Square Garden, where Michael Jordan was named game MVP during his last season with the Chicago Bulls.
