Smith: Raptors to host 2013 NBA All-Star Game

From Dougie's blog.

That's right folks, keep this under your hat, but a little birdie high within the ranks of MLSE mentioned offhandedly that if everything works out with finding an available venue to house the NBA Fanfest portion of the weekend, that they are a shoe-in to host it in 2013.

Just don't ask the city for money please. Deal with your corporate schmooze fest on your own.

Because I and 90% of the city could really give a rats ass

Yes but I've heard rumblings from the last time the Raptors were bidding for an ASG that they were problably going to ask for public money to hold it.

One good thing about this is if it's true BC will want to be here for that. So I hope he stays long term!

Yeah we was bidding for the games but MLSE forfeited until they build the expansion from the ACC to Roger Centre. You can go to Toronto City Hall to see the expansion. MLSE claims it will double the revenue for the city if its completed.

I remember trying to bid on some of these city projects, the investor companies completion time lines looked at 2014.

Now Doug's comment, MLSE vision, and investor timeliness make me think the comment is just a rumour
