Well, upgrades might be on the way.
So, Cleveland wants to get in line behind the already-selected or somewhat-selected future All-Star locations:
- 2017: New Orleans
- 2018: Los Angeles
- 2019: Charlotte (if North Carolina’s anti-LGBT law is sufficiently changed)
A newly-renovated Q will be the site of an NBA All-Star game, perhaps as early as 2020, according to the Cleveland Cavaliers.
The Cavs have been promised the big event — which draws celebrities and millions of dollars in tourist spending — once the arena is renovated, said CEO Len Komoroski.
February in Cleveland? Sounds… like something the NBA would do as a carrot for teams’ extracting taxpayer money to upgrade their arenas.
