The NBA announced this week, via an official press release, that New Orleans has been

awarded hosting duties for the 63rd NBA All-Star Game and weekend festivities.

 

Going down February 16, 2013, the game will be played at New Orleans Arena,

home of the Hornets, pending the completion of arena and hotel agreements.

It will be the second  time that  NBA All-Star  will be hosted in New  Orleans,

having previously been held in the "Crescent City" in 2008.

 

"There is no better place to celebrate and showcase the NBA than in New

Orleans, a city with a rich tradition of hosting major  events that is  second

to-none, " said Stern.  "Our  2008  NBA All-Star festivities  proved a terrific

experience for everyone involved,  and we anticipate  2014 will  be even

better."

 

A week-long celebration, NBA All-Star showcases NBA players' passion

for basketball,  engagement  with fans,  commitment to  community and

respect for the history and tradition of the game.

 

"I have always taken great pride in our city hosting Super Bowls. I don't think any

city does it better than New Orleans," said Saints owner Tom   highlight for our city

in 2014. I  thank Commissioner  Stern for making  this announcement today  and once

again  proving  how  much  he  believes  in  the  city of  New  Orleans. In  February  2013,  we will  host the  Super Bowl. In February 2014, we will host the NBA All-Star Game. The city of New Orleans is the place to be. Hundreds and hundreds of millions of dollars in economic impact will be generated for our region in these back-to-back February events. We could not be more pleased."

 

NBA All-Star competitions begin on Friday, February 14, as the league's top rookies and second-year players square off in the BBVA  Rising Stars  Challenge.  Then, following  events include the Taco Bell Skills Challenge, the Foot Locker Three-Point Contest, and the high-flying Sprite Slam Dunk contest.  Of course, the actual 63rd NBA All-Star Game will then come on Sunday, beginning with the Sprint Pre-game Concert.

 

In 2008, the last time All-Star Weekend was in the Nola, LeBron James captured All-Star MVP honors  in a 134-128 victory for the Eastern Conference.  James tallied 27 points,  including a thunderous  drive-and-dunk in  the final minute, to secure the award.
