According to the Athletic, the NBA and its Player’s Association have agreed to host a 2021 All-Star Game in Atlanta on March 7.

There’s more details to be worked out and more planning to schedule, but great to see the league’s associations get a deal done to showcase the NBA’s top talented players.

ESPN reported that there will likely also be a skills competition as well, but no word yet on a Slam Dunk Contest.

Health and safety protocols will also play a role in the terms, especially while the pandemic is still alive.
