The 2015 NBA All-Star Game will take place in New York City from Feb. 13-15. Friday and Saturday night festivities will happen at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, while the actual All-Star Game will take place at Madison Square Garden in Manhattan.

The five starters for each conference were selected via fan vote and announced on Jan. 22. The seven reserves were selected by coaches in each conference and will be announced on Jan. 29. We'll update this post with All-Star reserves as we learn about them. Atlanta's Mike Budenholzer will coach the Eastern Conference and Golden State's Steve Kerr will coach the West.

All-Star Saturday night will again feature the dunk contest, three-point shootout and skills competition. The dunk contest format has been changed back to a standard individual affair after the league experimented with an East vs. West team format last year.

Here's what we know about this year's participants.
