Michael Jordan Talks About His All Star Game

Michael Jordan discusses his all star game with reporter Brian Towey

The Capital Classic has been a longtime post-high school season staple. Now, the newly-named Jordan Classic will have a new home: Madison Square Garden.

"We looked at other places, but we felt New York City was the most appropriate venue to expose the kids to a little bit of the world outside of basketball," said Michael Jordan at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in Manhattan on Wednesday. "But also to give them a bit of a feel of what basketball is all about."

The Classic, which will take place on April 16th, will feature two games: a national game showcasing a pair of teams representing a cross-section of players from around the country, while the other will be more regional in scope, as a team of New York City players will take on a collection of players from Long Island, Westchester County, and Northern New Jersey.

"New York seems to be the most appropriate venue," said Jordan. "It's the basketball mecca."
