This. There's not going to be a season, Orlando doesn't get it in 2014 it's a joke.

Indy hasn't had it since 84. The city's literally designed to hold events like that. Sure, it'd be cold, but you'd only have to be outside for minutes at a time everything's so close. I'm sure they'd hold the game in Lucas Oil (Colts stadium), which is a shame, Conseco Fieldhouse is beautiful. Lucal Oil's state of the art and all, but it's a monstrosity.

Wow. Houstin is hosting it again in 2013?

The NBA favors warm weather climtates, so I see Miami hosting it. I would say San Antonio, but from what i've read the Spurs' gym is in the middle of nowhere.

Funny. Maybe the small market owners should ask for All-Star Games to be hosted in their arenas so that they can geenrate revenue. Because it looks like the game will strictly be held in warm climates and in the NBA Offices' backyard (Brooklyn/New York)

Some smaller markets may just not want it. Pretty sure when the Fieldhouse was first built Indy was approached about it but the Simons (owners) weren't interested and never were previous or prior, just too much of a hassle I guess. Don't know if it brings enough revenue, if any at all. Haven't seen any studies specifically on the NBA ASW but a lot of people are under the impression that the Super Bowl results in a net loss for the host city, and it's the friggin Super Bowl. The prestige and recognition's obviously nice and all, but if the money ain't right...

Toronto could support an NBA All-Star Game though. Air Canada Centre is a perfect stage and the city of Toronto has a lot goin' on. I mean yeah Customs is a bitch, but that should not deter the NBA at all.

I was under the assumption that players had to go through customs for every game in Toronto, so why is the ASG going to be so hard?

Because there's quite a bit more people affilitiated with it making the trip than there would be for some random mid-Februrary game against the Raptors.

Plus it's cold as shit. Seriously, that's the biggest problem. And you shouldn't knock the league for wanting to have their weekend showcase of superstars in a warm climate, it makes sense. Who the hell wants to be cold when you've got multiple other options? I don't understand why people care so much. Where was ASW weekend at 3 years ago? I don't know either.
