Young, much less of a jester than Hollis-Jefferson, talked about seeing the teenage talent at “his house,” as the host worded it. The 27-year-old seemed to like that. “It’s huge,” Young, a Nike athlete, said. “The Jordan Game is huge for Brooklyn, you know. And to say that they’ve played at Barclays Center is huge.

The All-Star Game is headed to Charlotte for 2017 and although nothing is official, league sources consider Los Angeles and Brooklyn to be strong favorites to land All-Star Weekend for 2018 and 2019. Cleveland has put in a bid for 2018. Sources say the league feels Brooklyn is deserving of its own All-Star Weekend in the near future since it shared the event with New York in 2015.
