What would have to happen for Portland to get the 2011 All-Star Game?
Portland is one of five NBA cities (along with OKC, Memphis, Toronto, and Sacramento) that have never hosted an All-Star game. I know they've said there isn't a big enough central hotel but surely they can work out an issue like that, can't they? Bring in a couple of cruise ship hotels or something. As a lifelong Portland resident I would love it if there was an All-Star game at the Rose Garden in 2011 or 2012.
