SAN FRANCISCO – The NBA announced today that the San Francisco Bay Area has been selected to host NBA All-Star 2025. The 74th NBA All-Star Game will take place at Chase Center, home of the Golden State Warriors, on Sunday, Feb. 16, 2025. NBA All-Star 2025 will mark the first time that the event has been held at Chase Center, which opened in 2019. Additional signature events will take place throughout the Bay Area, including at Moscone Convention Center, Oakland Arena and the Warriors’ Oakland facility. The Warriors previously hosted NBA All-Star in the Bay Area in 2000 at Oakland Arena in Oakland and in 1967 at the Cow Palace in Daly City.
NBA Commissioner Adam Silver made the announcement today during a press conference at Chase Center, where he was joined by Warriors Co-Executive Chairman and CEO Joe Lacob, Warriors Co-Executive Chairman Peter Guber, Warriors President and Chief Operating Officer Brandon Schneider, and San Francisco Mayor London Breed.
“We are thrilled to host our NBA All-Star festivities in the San Francisco Bay Area, where there is a long and storied history of basketball,” said Silver. “I want to thank Joe Lacob, Peter Guber and the entire Warriors organization for their support in bringing NBA All-Star back to the Bay Area.”
“It has been 25 years since the NBA All-Star Game was played in the San Francisco Bay Area, and we are delighted to bring the NBA’s marquee event to Chase Center in 2025,” said Lacob. “In addition to the significant economic impact and tourism business that NBA All-Star will drive, we look forward to hosting various events in San Francisco and Oakland to bring together basketball fans from all over the world.”
“San Francisco is honored that the 2025 NBA All-Star game will be coming to our incredible city,” said Breed. “Major sporting events like this bring excitement to our city and generate significant economic activity that creates jobs and support for our small businesses. We are proud to be home to an organization like the Golden State Warriors that not only provides thrills to all of our amazing fans night after night at Chase Center, but is a great partner to our city and supporter of communities across San Francisco.”

NBA ALL-STAR HISTORY IN THE BAY AREA
NBA All-Star 2025 will mark the 25th anniversary of the last time that the event was held in the Bay Area. In the 2000 NBA All-Star Game, the San Antonio Spurs’ Tim Duncan (24 points and 14 rebounds) and the Los Angeles Lakers’ Shaquille O’Neal (22 points and nine rebounds) shared Most Valuable Player honors and led the Western Conference past the Eastern Conference 137-126 at The Arena in Oakland. The Philadelphia 76ers’ Allen Iverson, making his All-Star Game debut, scored a game-high 26 points for the Eastern Conference.
NBA All-Star 2000 also featured an iconic performance by the Toronto Raptors’ Vince Carter to win the AT&T Slam Dunk. Carter, then in the second season of an NBA-record 22-season career, scored a perfect 50 on three of his five dunks and received scores of 49 and 48 on his other two attempts.
The first NBA All-Star Game in the Bay Area took place in 1967 at the Cow Palace. The host team’s players shined as the San Francisco Warriors’ Rick Barry earned the MVP award with 38 points and Warriors teammate Nate Thurmond had 16 points and 18 rebounds to help the Western Conference defeat the Eastern Conference 135-120.
Thirteen members of the NBA 75th Anniversary Team played in the 1967 NBA All-Star Game: Barry, Thurmond, Elgin Baylor, Wilt Chamberlain, Dave DeBusschere, Hal Greer, John Havlicek, Jerry Lucas, Willis Reed, Oscar Robertson, Bill Russell, Jerry West and Lenny Wilkens.
