Article Summary:

The 2021 NBA All-Star Game is set to kick off this evening of March 7 in Atlanta, Georgia with two new Boston Celtics suiting up to participate in the event on the seventieth anniversary of its creation, the first held in Boston, Massachusetts at the old Boston Garden of all places.

Celtics star wings Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum will become the 57th and 58th Boston players elected to the annual exhibition game to set the Celtics as the second-most so honored team in the history of the NBA. Initially created to improve the image of professional basketball after a point-shaving scandal in NCAA ball besmirched the sport in the eyes of the public, the event has taken on a life of its own as one of the league’s most anticipated events.

Only longtime rival Los Angeles Lakers can lay claim to more all-time All-Stars, and the Detroit Pistons are now one game behind Boston with 57, per Statmuse.
