Every year, the NBA All-Star Game brings together some of the best players in the league to compete against each other. Being selected to one of the two All-Star squads is a great honor and an item on pretty much every player’s bucket list.

Now that the Sacramento Kings are playing meaningful basketball again, the All-Star Game is an exciting event. Last season, both De’Aaron Fox and Domantas Sabonis were selected for the game in Salt Lake City, and later on both made the All-NBA third team.

That marked the first time since DeMarcus Cousins in 2017 that a Kings’ player was named an All-Star as well as the first time since 2004 and Brad Miller and Peja Stojakovic that the team had two All-Stars on the same roster. In 2024, Kings’ fans should be able to see at least one of their favorites at the All-Star Game once again.

When does All-Star voting begin?

The exact date for the beginning of All-Star voting has not been released yet, but be ready to start casting votes in mid-December. Last season, fan voting went from December 20 to January 21.

Where and when will the 2024 All-Star Game be held?

The 73rd NBA All-Star Game will take place in Indianapolis for the first time since 1985. All-Star break will start on Friday, February 16, and end on Wednesday, February 21 with events from the 16th to the 18th.

Events for the 16th are still to be determined, but the rest of the program is pretty set. So far, the 17th will feature the State Farm All-Star Saturday night, the Kia Skills Challenge, the Starry three-point contest, and the AT&T Slam Dunk Contest in Lucas Oil Stadium.

The actual All-Star Game will take place on the 18th in Gainbridge Field House, the home of the Indiana Pacers and Indiana Fever.

How can fans watch the 2024 NBA All-Star Game?

For the 22nd consecutive season, TNT will broadcast the All-Star Game once again, but there are also options to watch it without cable.

Fubo TV, for example, offers a free seven-day trial that allows you to watch the game. HBO Max will also launch a Bleacher Report Sports Add-On on October 5 that will be free until February 29 and will include all the All-Star weekend events.

Which Kings are we most likely to see in the 2024 All-Star Game?

Fox and Sabonis are clearly the Kings’ players to keep an eye on for the All-Star Game. For Fox, this is the chance to make his second consecutive All-Star Game, and Sabonis could get his fourth nod.

Rooting for anyone else would be a long shot. It is still too early for Keegan Murray, and Harrison Barnes, Kevin Huerter, and Malik Monk are not quite on the level of the usual All-Star candidates if they replicate their production from last season. It would be fun, however, to maybe see Huerter in the three-point contest.
