Samsung’s Gear VR headset, created with Oculus, already provides a pretty amazing experience. There’s a decent amount of content available, too, thanks to Samsung’s Milk VR video portal. Now the company is teaming up with the NBA to add even more amazing 360-degree video.

Samsung announced Friday that it’s working with the NBA and will record new content for the Gear VR this weekend leading up to, and during, the NBA All-Star game. That includes content from the 3-point contest, the NBA Slam Dunk contest and even a court-side experience during the big game.

The 360-degree Gear VR video will be available for free to all Gear VR owners soon, Samsung said, and can be accessed directly through the Milk VR application. We can’t wait to see what those court-side seats are really like.
