The GBCA is honored for more reasons than one, because the All-Star Game will be held in Irakleio, a city -like the rest of Crete- who loves and embraces basketball.

This weekend it is a good opportunity of the players and the coaches to get away from the hard work they put in day-in and day-out. We hope this celebration of basketball will give some good times to the participatnes and the fans and cannot forget that some of the greatest players and greatest coaches in Europe will show up in the court.
