Earlier, Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian took the plunge Twitter and asked Hey Twitter – What makes the @NBA All-Star Weekend programming such a fun spectacle? It’s like people go to town for it in a way that I don’t see in other major professional sports. Is it just because it’s so tied to the culture?

In response, he received many responses from fans, but one fan in particular pointed out that the average age of NBA fans is much lower than the NFL, NHL, PGA, MLB, and other sports. According to a fan, this was one of the main reasons for the popularity of the NBA all-star weekend. In response, Ohanian tweeted, “Haha! Okay, that’s a great point.”
