If Sacramento built a new arena I wouldn't be suprised if they had it there. Just need the arena...

Chicago. We have never had one at the UC.

Really? How long has it been open? You would think that the NBA wants a lot in Chicago. Unless they're saying their market there is big enough already? :shrug:

Ladies and gentlemen, I think we have a winner...

Chicago. We have never had one at the UC.

Sad to say it, but the area around the UC is not very good, pretty dangerous area, and an extremey high crime rate. I go to bulls games all the time and have to problem, but I would die if the All Star weekend came to Chicago.

Wilson
02-15-2009, 12:08 AM
Indianapolis, new stadium

You mean Lucas Oil stadium? Or are the Pacers getting a new arena?

I don't think Lucas Oil would be that great for the all-star game. Dallas stadium works because it's more of a national sports landmark.

toronto would be a great atmosphere..they could go with the whole first time ever, first canadian nba all-star theme......i think this place is crowded sometimes especially....when there is the right hype (ie: when raps were atlantic div champs....the roof was off the building during the playoffs)

There was talk of Toronto making a stong push for the 08 one in Toronto but i think that went down the drain. I do think they need to get one here tho. They have been in the league 15 years now and have good attendance numbers even though they have always **** the bed.

Miami,Oaklahama(get the fans in),are my other picks.

Lo Porto
02-15-2009, 10:49 AM
They should only go to a team who hasn't hosted in the last 30 years. If Miami had one 19 years ago, then they shouldn't get one before someone else has had the chance. They need to go to OKC to build that program up...

Miami, but then again, all the players might be in jail for drinking and partying too late :)

Oklahoma City deserves one. They have great fans already and are subjected to watching the Thunder all year. Give them some good basketball to watch.

Chicago in 2010 Been too long and since Derrick will be an allstar next year why not have him play in his home state?
New York in 2011 :) No reason to explain :p

Miami hasn't hosted one since 1990. Waaaaaay long overdue for another one.

And Chicago hasn't hosted one since 1988, so I guess that is longer than Waaaaaay past overdue for another one. But if it isn't in Chicago, I hope it is OKC so I can go to my grandparents house and then go to the games. That would be cool!

I agree not only because i'm from toronto, but a lot of people don't realize the first NBA game in its entire history was played in Toronto between the Huskies and the Knickerbockers

Toronto will get one of those all-star games. Toronto has bid hard for the past few and haven't ever had one. It would be their first opportunity to showcase the NBA in Canada

More shats!

Toronto better get the All-Star game soon.

The 2010 game is already set to be in Dallas, at the new Texas Stadium.


Bring them to London :clap:

It'll probably still be a while before they play one in London but hey, there will be one there before there's one in Swansea :p

New Orleans had it 2 years agio.
Somebody asked the Stern last night about Indiana because they might not stay in Indiana so that would elimate them for hosting it.
Yes Orlando is getting a new Areana and should host it
Montreal?
Alaska?
Nashville?
Pittsburgh?
Overseas?
Vancouver?
Anahiem?
Cincinatti?
Memphis?

I would say Miami as well. I have never been in the AAA but I have driven by it. The area is beautiful and would make a great spot for an All star game. If the game wasn't played in Feb than I would say Auburn Hills, but not in the middle of winter.

MilfHunter07
02-15-2009, 11:58 PM
the aaa in miami seems like the best but i think they havent done it there because the players would be getting arrested left and right.

Chicago. We have never had one at the UC.

Chicago would be a great place to have the game, I can't remember an all-star game being played out there in quite sometime.... Also, MSG would be a good place..

Yeah, that'd be hella sick... but really, New Orleans was probably the most deserving city to ever host the All-Star Game. It was really a no brainer. I couldn't be happier that it was there and I was pulling for the Hornets to win the championship, but oh well.

Not what I'm saying. People are saying it SHOULD be in their own city, in which 20 cities have been mentioned. Which is quite funny to me.

It would be insane to have a game at Wembley Stadium, it would probably rain though :sigh:

I think there's a new state of the art arena being built though. I thought that they were just going to use the o2 Arena for the '12 Olympics, but I've heard that there's going to be a whole new stadium built. If so they'd probably use that.

Besides that there's Wembley Arena (which people always confuse with the Stadium, and get disapointed when they realize they're just going to the arena :laugh2:), but I don't think it's really big enough for an NBA game.

thanks.

I think the cities put their own proposals together and submit them to the league.
