    What Should I Wear?

    This is one of those questions that doesn't really need to be asked but is worth mentioning anyway. NBA All-Star 2019 is all about celebrating the sport and the season, so make sure to wear your favorite team's gear when coming to any of the events. If you don't have any team gear, make sure to just dress comfortably, there's not really a wrong way to dress for an NBA event.
