    NBA Commissioner Adam Silver speaks at a press conference ahead of the All-Star Game at Air Canada Centre on February 13, 2016NBA commissioner Adam Silver likes the idea of playing a future All-Star Game in Europe, but emphasized such a move was at least five years away. On the eve of the 65th NBA All-Star Game in Toronto, the first to be staged beyond US borders, Silver said the extra distance to Asia compared to Europe would have him looking across the Atlantic Ocean for an overseas host rather than the Pacific. "It's something we would love to do one day," Silver said.

    NBA: All-Star Saturday NightBy Frank Pingue TORONTO (Reuters) - The NBA is considering bringing its All-Star Weekend overseas and Europe would be the likely host over Asia given the shorter amount of travel involved for players, Commissioner Adam Silver said on Saturday. With Toronto currently hosting the league's first All-Star Weekend outside of the United States, Silver acknowledged that finding ways to bring its midseason showcase overseas was being discussed. "It's logistically more difficult than it may seem because there's a ripple effect in terms of the number of days we take off on the rest of the schedule." The NBA currently plays its 82-game regular season schedule in about 162 days and has recently made strides in reducing the number of times a team plays on consecutive days or a more gruelling stretch of four games in five nights.
