STERN TOURS GUND ARENA: ALL STAR '97 IN CLEVELAND?
Published November 10, 1994
NBA Commissioner David Stern toured the Gund arena Wednesday, saying the Cavaliers' new home is among several sites being considered to host the '97 All Star game. NBA Deputy Commissioner Russ Granik said the two major considerations for an All-Star site are "the arena and the hotels in the area." Stern, Granik, Cavaliers owner Gordon Gund, Cavaliers GM Wayne Embry and other team and NBA execs toured the arena and attended the Cavaliers opening game. Stern says the new facility has "a special intimacy" and has contributed to Cleveland's downtown "revitalization." The '95 All Star game will be played in Phoenix and the '96 game in Houston (Burt Graeff, Cleveland PLAIN DEALER, 11/9). The NBA "Nightly News" featured a piece on Gund Arena and its effect on Cleveland's downtown (NBC, 11/9).
