CHARLOTTE, N.C.– The Charlotte Hornets will officially submit a bid for Charlotte to host the NBA All-Star Weekend at Time Warner Cable Arena in 2017 or 2018, the team and Charlotte Sports Foundation announced Tuesday.

WSOC is reporting that representatives from the Charlotte Hornets and Charlotte Sports Foundation will fly to New York Monday to deliver the bid to the NBA.

“We are confident in the strength of our bid of host NBA All-Star Weekend,” said Johnny Harris, CSF board chairman and president of Lincoln Harris. “Charlotte has proven to be a thriving center of economic growth and development.”

Charlotte hosted the NBA All-Star game in 1991 with the East defeating the West 116-114 before a sold-out crowd of 23,530 at the Charlotte Coliseum.

    Doubt it will happen….for one, change names like Pj Hairston changes attorneys…and for two, need winning seasons before you can bring crowds to a troubled city.
