ABA All Star Game

 GAME 9: at McNichols Arena, Denver, Colorado, January 27, 1976

MVP: David Thompson, Denver Nuggets

Coaches:

All-Stars: Kevin Loughery, New York Nets

Denver: Larry Brown, Denver Nuggets

In the 1976 ABA All Star Game, the league abandoned the usual East vs. West format it used from the 1967-68 season onward and instead had the league's first place team at the All Star break face off against a team of ABA All Stars. At the All Star break the Denver Nuggets were in first place, which was convenient as the Nuggets had also been selected to host the game in McNichols Arena.

Pre-game entertainment was provided by Glen Campbell and Charlie Rich.

Halftime of the All Star Game saw the first-ever Slam Dunk Contest, which was won by Julius Erving of the New York Nets over David Thompson of the Denver Nuggets, Artis Gilmore of the Kentucky Colonels, George Gervin of the San Antonio Spurs and Larry Kenon of the Spurs. The NBA later adopted the Slam Dunk Contest as part of its All Star Game starting in 1984.
