When it comes to All-Star games, the NBA is about as good as it gets. Not only is the actual game competitive (unlike the Pro-Bowl), but there’s a whole weekend of festivities leading up to the event. This makes for a fun three days of NBA.
If you’re looking to stream NBA All-Star Weekend (which kicks off at 10:30 ET this Friday), you’ll need three channels. Luckily, there are multiple ways to stream each.
