Last week NBA Commissioner David Stern announced that New Orleans will host the 63rd NBA All-Star game. Hornets owners and many other have expressed their excitement to host the event for the 2nd time. The first time New Orleans hosted the NBA All-Star game was back in 2008, Lebron James took the MVP trophy home that year.
The city of New Orleans has always been a great host for big sporting events. This past year New Orleans hosted the 2012 BCS championship, then a few months later hosted the 2012 Final Four. Next year in 2013 the super bowl will be coming to New Orleans along with the NCAA womens final four. The people of New Orleans have a lot to look forward to.
