The 1995 NBA All-Star Game was broadcast by NBC the fifth consecutive year.
Charles Barkley was the main host of the event. During a break in the game near the fourth quarter he even wanted to shoot himself out of a catapult, but his coach made sure he didn't do it because he did not want his star player to get injured.
Grant Hill of the Detroit Pistons was the first rookie in NBA history to lead the league in votes for this year's All-Star game. Hakeem Olajuwon led the Western Conference voting. Karl Malone and David Robinson were both questionable for the game due to injuries but they ended up playing limited minutes. Dominique Wilkins and Clyde Drexler were not selected.
Larry Johnson came back to the all-star lineup after missing last years game due to a serious back injury. It meant a lot for him to come back from the injury and make the all-star game the next season. He came back as a reserve this year. Penny Hardaway played his first game as a starter for the Eastern conference team this year. Cedric Ceballos was selected as a reserve, but did not play due to being injured beforehand by Dikembe Mutombo in a regular season game. Mutombo replaced Ceballos.
