It's been awhile

The last time the East hosted the All-Star Game was way back in 2003 in Atlanta... It was Michael Jordan's final farewell to all of us... Ever since then, the West has been hosting the event... I hope this 2012, David Stern will consider a venue in the East... It's been crazy...

2004- Los Angeles
2005- Denver
2006- Houston
2007- Las Vegas
2008- New Orleans
2009- Phoenix
2010- Dallas
2011- Los Angeles (again!)

I hope in 2012, the NBA should give this one to Toronto... I think they have great fans out there who are excited to host this great event...

Can't agree more

Completely agree... they need to bring it back to the East... also Toronto is a great destination... it would bring more attention to the city, especially since most of the NBA cities don't hear much about Toronto outside the false Chris Bosh rumours!

I think, and maybe Im wrong,

I think, and maybe Im wrong, but having it in Toronto would be a hassle for 90% of NBA fans. Getting a passport and heading across the border is alot of work. I know it isnt fair but the NBA is going to have it in the place where they will make the most money. I think if it is in Toronto, lots of people wont go because of the trouble it would be. Also, I think they like to have it in a place where it is warm, unlike Dallas this year, so people can be out and about. I know if it were in the East, Toronto is the only place that I wouldnt go to see it... Sry Canada...

Bring it back to New York. I

Bring it back to New York. I was like 6 or 7 when it was last in NY, and I want to have that all-star experience.

i don't think it is a east

i don't think it is a east vs west thing or that either conference even has an advantage in the game because of "homecourt". It usually goes to newer arenas and cities that can handle having a lot of tourist activity.

There has been worse weather in America recently than in Toronto! It's not even snowing here, and Washington/Baltimore has already more snow in one day than Toronto has had all winter! And about the American's coming over the border, Terrell Owens came to a Raptors game and so did Johnny Flynn's family when the the T-Wolves came to Toronto. Chris Rock has been to Raptors game, so hopefully it isn't too hard to come here.

Toronto would be the perfect city to host it!

Toronto would be a great

Toronto would be a great place to host the All Star Game because Stern wants to go International.

I think NY, DC or even Boston are good spots for a East Coast ASG
