NBA Crossover will be the most-attended event of NBA All-Star Weekend in Salt Lake City.

The three-day event at the Salt Palace runs from Friday to Sunday and is open from 12 p.m. through 8 p.m. MST.

At a media preview on Thursday night, we explored everything NBA Crossover has to offer.

The bottom line — this is going to be a really fun event for kids and it has enough stuff to keep adults entertained as well.

There are no less than 30 basketball hoops of all sizes scattered through the Salt Palace. There’s NBA 3-point challenges, miniature hoops for kids to dunk on, moving hoops, and a 20-foot hoop.

There’s a special NBA Jam Session section, which was featured in Utah’s 1993 All-Star Weekend, which has 14 full basketball courts and hoops for people to play on.

You can take a photo with the Larry O’Brien trophy, play NBA Jam at an arcade, or visit one of the many experiences the NBA’s sponsors have set up.

Chris Paul and Allen Iverson will speak at panels at NBA Crossover throughout the weekend and Will Hardy, Collin Sexton, Jose Alvarado, Pau Gasol, Bill Walton, Jamal Crawford, Walker Kessler, Keegan Murray, Udonis Haslam and Arike Ogunowale will be making meet-and-greet appearances throughout the weekend.

NBA Crossover tickets are $40 for adults and $20 for kids 12 and under and can be purchased on the NBA Events app.

The NBA Events app has a full schedule of all of the panels and player appearances happening at the Salt Palace.
