The 2024 NBA All-Star Game itself will be a return to tradition: East versus West (no teams to choose captains), four 12-minute quarters (no target score), all played on a wooden court of Old school as it used to be. Used for Hoosier State basketball for as long as anyone can remember.
A state-of-the-art LED stadium all-star Saturday night Nothing but traditional.
It's almost as much a basketball court as it is a giant glass TV you can play basketball on, but it should add to the showmanship of a Saturday night, better than the All-Star Game itself. For example, during a three-point contest, statistics could be shown at the other end of the court in real time, something that was on the jumbotron hanging above the court.
“It gives us a little bit more scope in what we can do in terms of interactive graphics, interactive graphics that happen on the floor, changing the floor design, changing colors, and really interacting with the play that happens on the field,” he said. Carlton Myers, Vice President of the National Basketball Association, He speaks to the Associated Press. “So, we feel really good about the capabilities of what this offers us, what it provides us. We think it's going to be really impactful, both in the building and watching on TV.”
NBA Vice President of Basketball Operations Joe Dumars and NBA President Andre Iguodala — both legendary players — tested the glass court themselves before signing on.
“What does it look like? Does it have traction? Does it have momentum? Those are the questions that immediately come to mind when you hear about this court,” Dumars said via AP. “And he responded to them to our satisfaction.”
The stadium was designed and developed by ASB GlassFloor and is not entirely new; FIBA had the ASB GlassFloor Stadium For the FIBA Under-19 Women's Basketball World Cup last July in Spain. However, this is the first time it has been used in any NBA events.
