The 1998 NBA All-Star Game was the 48th edition of the North American National Basketball Association All-Star Game. The event was held at Madison Square Garden in New York City. The East won the game 135–114. This game was the All-Star Game debut of Kobe Bryant, the youngest all-star in NBA history at 19 years of age, and rookie Tim Duncan. Bryant had a team-high 18 points. Michael Jordan earned MVP honors, scoring 23 points, grabbing 6 rebounds, and dishing out 8 assists despite having the flu. The Game featured four all-stars from the Los Angeles Lakers. The Western Conference was coached by George Karl from the Seattle SuperSonics and the Eastern Conference was coached by Larry Bird of the Indiana Pacers. This marks the only All-Star game to feature both Kobe Bryant and Michael Jordan in which Jordan was with the Chicago Bulls. Jordan came out of retirement in 2001 and played two more seasons (and selected to the All-Star team both years) for the Washington Wizards.

The halftime show featured the Broadway All-Stars.
