NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Baseball’s All-Star game is coming to Queens this year. Next February, we’ll have a Super Bowl in East Rutherford, N.J. — and “Super Bowl Boulevard” in New York City.

The NBA could complete the trifecta with the Knicks and Nets “among several” teams to have submitted formal bids to host All-Star weekend in 2015, according to the New York Daily News.

It could come down to Brooklyn vs. Manhattan, a choice between the brand new Barclays Center and the renovated Madison Square Garden. The third and final phase of MSG’s pricey transformation is scheduled to be completed in time for the 2013-14 season.

The league hasn’t made a decision, and there won’t be an announcement during this weekend’s All-Star festivities in Houston, the Daily News reported.

The 2014 game was awarded to New Orleans.

As for this year’s game, Knicks star Carmelo Anthony is expecting to start for the East despite injuring his right arm on Wednesday night, according to the New York Post.

After the loss to Toronto, Anthony said he wasn’t “going to force it. As bad as you want to play the All-Star Game, if I can’t go, I can’t go.’’

Should the NBA pick one of New York’s teams? Which one? Make your case in the comments!
