This Is Dumb

The NBA is expected to announce tomorrow that the 2015 NBA All-Star Weekend will be split between MSG and the Barclays Center.  The actual game will be played at MSG, but the other events will be played in Brooklyn.

This is just too stupid for words. Why split the event? I would guess money, but you create a logistical nightmare. Start with the out of towners who have to figure out how to shuttle between the two events. Then think about the different seating capacities of the two arenas. (about a 4,000 seat difference) What are you going to do about the usual package tickets sold for the weekend?

Why not give Brooklyn the All-Star Game on its own and put another one in New York somewhere down the line? Instead, you are just making people mad.
