That said the NBA clearly doesn't care about weather since NY and Toronto are getting it b2b
yeah, but apparently the last time they held it in a cold city was in '04, clearly it's something they're trying to avoid.

If you had the choice of traveling to a city for a weekend in the middle of winter, would you pick Toronto/New York/Chicago or Miama/Phoenix/LA.

Logistically there is no issue, but all the players and media would rather it be hosted in a warm city. I don't blame them.

I'm sure they'll manage. The parties in the city are going to be crazy and they know it

How are tickets sold? Lottery system, ticketmaster? When do they usually start to go on sale? I've never been to an all-star game and would like to attend this

I live in Vancouver

Didn't Demar say a while ago that he wouldn't participate in any dunk competitions unless it was in Toronto? It would be absolutely sick if he and Ross were in it

Huh? I don't make the decision, you know - just reporting the situation ... don't shoot the messenger ...

I don't understand why someone didn't ask what facilities other than the ACC will be used all-star weekend? The media here is so stupid.

Indeed.

I'd imagine Ricoh being used for something. It'd be cool to see the Skydome or "Rogers Centre" being used for the Game.

Kyle Lowry looks a little leaner that's good. As for ASG it's good too, hopefully we'll have a rep there but according to jeffb likely not.

Ouch. Giant venue and the venue of the greatest sporting team the city has ever seen.
