Default Toronto In Running For 2010 All-Star Game?

Hmmm ... I didn't even know we were up for consideration. Anyhow, not likely going to happen for 2010 but its good to see that we're at least getting some consideration and hopefully one year soon we'll host the game.

Dallas appears to be the front-runner. There has been a proposal to have the game at the new Cowboys' Stadium, which would allow all the Mavericks season ticket-holders to be able to attend.

"Really don't have any idea what our chances are, or what happens [venue-wise] if we do get it in a few years," said Mavericks' owner Mark Cuban.
