Published March 1, 1995
The 76ers have put in a bid to host the '98 NBA All-Star Game, according to Phil Jasner of the PHILADELPHIA DAILY NEWS. 76ers Business Manager Gerry Ryan has been in contact with the NBA about the availability of the CoreStates Center, which is scheduled to open for '96-97. Ryan: "I can't say what our chances out, but I think we already have most of the pieces they're looking for."
