    Default 2016 NBA Allstar Games In Toronto!

    The Raptors are on the verge of landing the 2016 NBA All-Star game in Toronto, according to multiple sources.

    An official announcement is expected shortly that will reveal further details of how one of the sport's biggest weekends will tie in to the Toronto Raptors' 20th-anniversary season.

    Tim Leiweke, Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment president and CEO, made it clear upon taking over the company that landing the prestigious event was one of his early goals.

    “Clearly the 2016 all-star game is a flag in the sand that we planted with the NBA. It is a must have in my opinion and it will be the centre piece of how we rebrand this,” Leiweke said in May.

    Didn't see this coming, despite Leiweke's statements when he came onboard.

    I, for one, won't bother attending any events. Just can't think of anything that is worth the hassle of dealing with those kind of crowds...but it will be a good day for TO and thew Raps organization.

    I'm right there with you Puffer. Have no interest in attending any of it, but great for the city.
