Toronto Prepares To Host All-Star Weekend Next Season

The hype begins.

Just as one All-Star Weekend wraps up, the hype for the next one starts.

From last night, almost immediately after the All-Star game at Madison Square Garden was over:

A Toronto tip-off party was held in New York last night, and this image was circulating around the web.

A lot of media members complained about the cold weather in New York this weekend. Well, consider it a warm-up for next year's All-Star Weekend!

A few other early thoughts on the All-Star festivities next season:

  • Mark this down as the easiest prediction for 2016: Drake's press conference at All-Star Weekend next year will be a five mic classic.
  • I'm convinced, if Raptors fans wanted to, they could easily get Bruno Caboclo voted in as an All-Star starter next season. Get Harper, Bieber and Drake to send out a tweet, and we'll go from there. Seriously, Adam Silver might want to step in.
  • Andrew Wiggins versus Zach LaVine in the dunk contest?
  • Can we get Patrick Patterson into the three-point shootout? I feel like he would run out of time doing his celebration after every make, but we can work on that.
It's going to be a lot of fun.
