Suprised this hasnt been posted yet, but here goes...

A Las Vegas casino has filed a lawsuit against the NBA and a player's charity seeking payment on a convention bill dating to the 2007 All-Star game.

Wynn Las Vegas claims NBA Entertainment, NBA Properties and co-defendant Alonzo Mourning Charities have failed to pay a $50,000 bill for convention and meeting space and related services used during the 2007 NBA All-Star weekend.

Wynn Las Vegas last month recovered a $400,000 gambling debt from retired basketball standout Charles Barkley after filing a lawsuit. After the media reported the lawsuit, Barkley quickly repaid the debt, plus $40,000 in district attorney's fees for the case.

The casino claims to have entered into an agreement with NBA Entertainment for use of the resort's hotel and convention space during the February 2007 event.

NBA Entertainment then authorized the charity to use some of the convention and meeting space for a fund-raiser, according to the lawsuit.

Maureen Coyle, NBA vice president of communications, said the league could not comment on the lawsuit because its attorneys have not seen it.
