David Aldridge would like to see an ASG in Toronto

Q: What are your thoughts on the possibility of the NBA All-Star weekend happening in Toronto sometime soon? ... Toronto isn't exactly a slouch when it comes to hosting world-class international events. I think it'd be a resounding success!


Please tell me who I see about this, Kiran. I miss the regular trips to the 416 that came in the early, Vince and T-Mac days. I don't think weather would be any more of a factor there than in, say Minneapolis and Salt Lake City, two cities that have hosted All-Star games in the last 20 years. (There was a near blizzard in SLC in '93, but that didn't stop folks from enjoying themselves.) I asked the league about this on Friday and was told that they don't believe the powers that be in Toronto have ever applied to host an ASW. It's always a hassle for cities and owners to host the weekend, because they have to invariably displace season-ticket holders who expect tickets to the game and the Saturday night events, and either don't get them or are pushed up into the rafters. But Toronto is one of my favorite NBA cities and I'd love to be up there for an All-Star.

I like David Aldridge. And not because he said that. He seems like a good guy and a hard worker.

there was talk about this during the VC years but i think what happened was MLSE decided not to make a bid for it until they finished all the maple leaf condos around the ACC

Yeah, we need an All Star before an ASG can come to Toronto. Would suck if we had no All Star to represent Toronto at an All Star game in Toronto.

MrClutch 02-28-2011 07:16 PM

i say we make a bid once we have the star power

that's impressive. A human rights catastrophe, some sporting event nobody knows much about, and something called a world series that has absolutely zero international involvement.

Don't forget that we had some kind of youth soccer event where South American players got tazed.

anyone hear about the toronto international film festival, or is that not international enough for you.
lx, your too negative about toronto and i see that your representing toronto. toronto is a great city to be in, i have been living here for more then 25 years. american media is the one to blame, all the negativity we get cause amrica in my mind is scared of us canadians.
