Default 2010 All Star Game in Charlotte?

Quote:
"NBA commissioner David Stern said last week that a decision on the 2010 game is expected to be announced at the beginning of the upcoming season. While the Celtics have looked into the process of hosting an All-Star Game for the first time since 1964, a team source said no official application has been filed.

The 2009 All-Star Game is in Phoenix, and projected candidates for 2010 include Dallas, Toronto, Charlotte, and New York.

"There are several places that we're considering," said Stern. "We are aiming to have a decision shortly after the season starts."

Dallas seems to be the front-runner for 2010. There has been a proposal to have the game at the new Cowboys stadium in nearby Arlington, which would allow all the Mavericks season ticket-holders to be able to attend."

Wow this would be amazing and we should have at least 1 player on the team by then. I would think it would go to Dallas though....

Jrich for sure. By that time it would be nice if Mek was 20/10 on average considering he's got an allstar contract.

More than likely Charlotte will get it in the next 5 years, it really depends on how well the team does. However, I see Boston, New York and Toronto to get it before we do.

Team record has no impact on ability to land the all star game (Heck, Atlanta got it a few years ago and they were TERRIBLE at the time and had been for years).

I could definitly see Stern giving it to New York to give the impression to the nation that the Knicks are turning around. Plus 2010 would be the best time in New York because in the 2009 offseason they will be shedding Stephon Marbury from the team and freeing up 20+ million in cap space.

I would love for the Bobcats to get national coverage on a huge stage like the All-Star game especially with the young players they have like Raymond Felton, Gerald Wallace, Emeka Okafor and D.J. Augustin and unless they do something big this season, then I just don't see it happening in 2010, maybe 2013 or so when all that talent has reached its potential and the Bobcats are in the playoffs.
