There was 108 713 people at the All Star game at Cowboys Stadium which was an attendance record. Phoenix, Houston, Indiana, Detroit, Minnesota, and Atlanta all have NBA teams and football domes. Atlanta had the game in 2003, so they probably wont get it, but here are the capacities of each one.
Phoenix - 63 400
Houston - 71 054
Indiana - 63 000
Detroit - 64 500
Minnesota - 64 121
Atlanta - 71 250

You do realize that Jerry World is basically a dome stadium?

They arent going to do another All Star Game in the North where its 20-30 degrees like in Detroit, Indiana or Minnesota.

They recently did the ASG in Phoenix and Houston aswell.

Thing is with the Dallas AS Weekend, it was so big, that the next city has so much to live up to. I know its probably set up for a 'Hollywood' style weekend next year, but unless the next city is like, New York, then the city in 2012 will have to spend quite a bit to keep up with standards.

There's not much to do in most of the cities that have dome stadiums. Out of those you mentioned, I think Houston and Atlanta have the best chance.

They should play the ASG outside, that'd be sweet. But there ain't too many places you could play outside in Februrary.

Indy - they need the revenue, Its a basketball state, Our stadium is new and attractive. Also the city around it is being built up for the SB in 2012.

What is there to do in Indy?

They attract the college student/wealthy alumni crowd during the Final Four but for the ASG they would be attracting a broad variety of people who build their vacations around All Star Weekend.

haha, im not disagreeing with you. we arent a warm weather state, we dont have much to do and all. All you do here you smoke weed and drink alcohol... thats how you stay warm. :D

It really is a nice state though, very clean, really nice downtown area with lots of parks and shopping, tons of clubs and bars. Theres a lot of family things to do, like the childrens museum and the indianapolis museum of art.

But if it wasnt for how badly the city needs the revenue and how nice Lucas Oil Stadium is, i wouldnt have brought it up.
