Having the All-Star game in Toronto would be an excellent way of celebrating the Raptor's 20th anniversary, as this would be the first ever All-Star game hosted in Canada. The Raptors have not been very successful since their humble start in 1995, as part of the expansion draft with the Vancouver Grizzlies. Although, the Raptors have had their share in the spotlight, thanks to multiple outstanding performances by Chris Bosh, Vince Carter, and Tracy McGrady, among others. I mean, who could forget Vince's incredible showing at the 2000 Dunk Contest? All-Star weekends, with all their fun festivities and competitions and media attention, continue to draw in fans by the masses, year by year. With all it's multiculturalism, basketball has really found a home in Toronto. And what a better way to reward the fans, with a 3 day basketball fiesta!
Oh and just in case you've forgotten, here are some highlights from the 2000 NBA Dunk Contest..
