Default Wizards to celebrate Chinese New Year

Located in the heart of the District’s Chinatown, Verizon Center will once again serve as the tip-off point for the NBA’s in-arena celebrations for the Chinese New Year when the Wizards host the Brooklyn Nets on Feb. 8.

The game will be among 23 games televised live and streamed on Chinese Central Television, the nation’s state-run international broadcaster, and other Chinese network partners during an eight-day celebration of the Year of the Snake.

“It’s almost impossible to overstate the importance of Chinese New Year, it really is the most important festival,” David Shoemaker, NBA China’s chief executive said in a telephone interview. “This year is the largest international tribute ever that the NBA has put on with our Chinese New Year celebration.”
