Default 2016 ALL STAR GAME IN TORONTO!!!

WOW this is just amazing news. Did not expect this to happen

TORONTO - The basketball world is coming to Toronto in early 2016.

Multiple sources told the Toronto Sun Tuesday that the Raptors are on the verge of landing the 2016 NBA all-star weekend.

An official announcement is expected shortly that will reveal further details of how one of the sport's biggest weekends will tie in to the Toronto Raptors' 20th-anniversary season.

Tim Leiweke, Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment president and CEO, made it clear upon taking over the company that landing the prestigious event was one of his early goals.

“Clearly the 2016 all-star game is a flag in the sand that we planted with the NBA. It is a must have in my opinion and it will be the centre piece of how we rebrand this,” Leiweke said in May.

Watch some of that weekend be held at the rogers centre. ACC is too small and no decent facility has been built yet or is available.

They must have already figured that out when they had to place their bid. I like that local reporters are breaking news about the Raptors after Tim became CEO

AWESOME!! The first year Wiggins makes the All-Star team it will be in his hometown. All the pieces of the puzzle are coming together.

we're not getting wiggins, unless we get the 14th chance in lotto and strike gold.

I think the FA in 2015 is going to be huge, and ujiri planned it like this looking at the contracts

2015-16:

20th anniversary of the franchise
Rudy Gay comes off the books (2015 summer if he picks up his PO)
All-Star game
Re-brand?
Spend like drunken sailors?

This seems to have been the plan all along since TL came on board.
