A few weeks ago, there was a report that the NBA was considering making the All-Star break longer. They've gone ahead and done that, according to multiple reports.

Adam Silver has said that players have asked him about making the mid-February break a bit longer, and he's clearly listened to them. It's a logical move in a long season, even if it means a few more back-to-backs during the year.

All-Star weekend will be in New York City this coming season, with the Knicks and Nets jointly hosting the festivities.
