2010 NBA All-Star Game Coming to DFW

The DMN reports that we are getting the 2010 NBA All-Star Game. The game itself will be held in Arlington.

OK, so we won’t host the actual game. But we should host the auxiliary week-long events at venues that really bring in the tourists and spenders.

This is long overdue. The game hasn’t been here since 1986, which was way back in the NBA tight-shorts era (see right).

Many cities that have held the All-Star game in recent years are much smaller than Dallas. While refraining from bashing other cities, it’s more than overdue.

The NBA All-Star game is a chance to show off the city to the rest of the country and the world. There are also a couple of other events that I’m pretty sure are coming to Big D; more should be announced in the coming weeks.
