    Exclamation All-Star 2012

    Since the 2011 All-star location has already been chosen as Los Angeles, CA

    why not Toronto for the 2012?

    Thoughts? we never had one and it would be nice to have one outside the US for once?

    A lot of teams haven't hosted it yet including toronto, memphis, portland, sacramento and OKC.

    Considering Portland and Sacrmento have been in the nba for a pretty long time, they should deserve it but NBA seems to go to a location that will garner a lot of media attention.

    New York has held it 6 times

    I still belive toronto would be a good location ...since the other sports teams in Toronto aren't doing so well and plus it would help basketball soo much here

    1998, the MJ vs Kobe Show.

    I agree, I would like it back at MSG...

    BUT

    it has been after all 12 yrs, and there are also other deserving NBA cities who have never had it, like Toronto and such.

    This is basically the breakdown of where the all-star game has been since 1998


    1998-New York, NY (MVP: Michael Jordan)
    1999-None (NBA LOCKOUT)
    2000-Oakland, CA (MVPs: Shaquille O'Neal & Tim Duncan)
    2001-Washington DC (MVP: Allen Iverson)
    2002-Philadelphia, PA (MVP: Kobe Bryant)
    2003-Atlanta, GA (MVP: Kevin Garnett)
    2004-Los Angeles, CA (MVP: Shaquille O'Neal)
    2005-Denver, CO (MVP: Allen Iverson)
    2006-Houston, TX (MVP: LeBron James)
    2007-Las Vegas, NV (MVP: Kobe Bryant)
    2008-New Orleans, LA (MVP: LeBron James)
    2009-Phoenix, AZ (MVPs: Kobe Bryant & Shaquille O'Neal)
    2010-Dallas, TX (MVP: ?)
    2011-Los Angeles, CA (MVP: ?)
    2012-??? (MVP: ?)

    If the Nets get a big free agent this summer and move to the Barclays Center, why not there?

    Chicago(beautiful city, great atmophere)
    Toronto(another huge city, great arena would be good to get more fans from canada and the us to watch)
    New York(MSG)
    OKC(we had one in new orleans, why not okc)
