When will the NBA All-Star Game be held in Boston? 

Here's what Adam Silver had to say when it was first broadcast on NBC Sports. Boston

It's been a long time since Boston hosted an NBA All-Star Game. Despite the fact that the Celtics are one of the most historic clubs in the league, the city hasn't hosted the tournament since 1964.

The wait will go at least two years longer, since the next two All-Star Games will be held in Salt Lake City and Indianapolis, respectively. Following that, the NBA may consider TD Garden as a prospective location.

The league is interested in bringing the All-Star Game back to Boston, where it was first held in 1951, according to Commissioner Adam Silver.

"I don't know if you knew this, but Boston hosted the first two NBA All-Star Games in the early 1950s," Silver remarked on Celtics Pregame Live on Sunday. "We've got to get back there," says the narrator.

 I know Wyc (Grousbeck) and Steve (Pagliuca) and the ownership there are concerned about it.

"As a fan and as the commissioner, I can tell that we enjoy travelling across the league and visiting different markets." One of the great sports cities is Boston.

I'm sure it would be welcomed by many. So they're focusing on it, and I know we'd love to play in an All-Star Game there."

The Celtics are drafting a bid to host the All-Star Game in the coming years, according to Gary Washburn of The Boston Globe.

"I think that Boston's application is a good one. "It's a wonderful city, and we'll obviously be there shortly," Silver said ahead of the NBA Finals on Thursday.

In the event's history, Boston has hosted four All-Star Games: 1951, 1952, 1957, and 1964.
