2013 NBA All-Star Game Headed To Houston, According To Report

Houston is scheduled to host the 2013 NBA All-Star Game, but the league and the Rockets have yet to confirm this host location.

While the NBA Lockout is far from over, the league has chosen Houston to host the 2013 NBA All-Star Game, according to a report. According to the Associated Press, Tere Perry, the public relations manager for the Hilton Americas hotel in Houston, announced that the establishment has been told to be ready for the weekend event.

However, neither the Houston Rockets nor the NBA has confirmed this. Right now the league must be wondering whether the 2012 NBA All-Star Game in Orlando's Amway Center will even be played.

This will be the third time Houston has hosted the All-Star game. In 1989, the Astrodome played host to the game, which the West won, 143-134. Karl Malone picked up the MVP award with a 28-point, nine-rebound performance. In 2006, the Toyota Center witnessed a close game. Game MVP LeBron James scored 29 points in the East's 122-120 victory.
