NBA is currently doing a presser on NBATV on the 2015 asg. split between MGS+barclays.
all the nba bigwigs are in NY so i dont know if they will announce toronto anytime soon ....
The Wolstat article said official announcement would be within a week.

Definitely a sign that the NBA is setting us up to draft a potential superstar (i.e. wiggins?). We can't headline the ASG without a superstar (as much as I like JV, I don't think he'll ever reach superstar status).
Toronto gets their all-star game, so no more having to hear about that for the next 15 years; Canada gets to watch it's Great North Hype in Wiggins at the Rookie game; Wiggins, even if he had no plans to, will almost be forced into the Dunk Contest; cue the ratings boost for All-Star Friday and Saturday. It's win-win-win-win as far the NBA sees it.
I mean, I might pay $80-$100 tops to see the SnoozeFest... err Slam Dunk contest, but I'd rather just catch the game on my 60".
It's gonna be amazing to have the city spotlighted in a fashion we haven't seen in a lonnnnnnnnnng time, if ever!
Keep Calm & Chive On

Basketball has clear winners every night --except at the draft, which is all homework, politics and chance.
