76ERS MAKE BID TO HOST NBA ALL-STAR GAME IN '98

     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."  Philadelphia has hosted the All-Star Game
three times -- in '60, '70, and '76 (PHILADELPHIA DAILY NEWS,
2/28).
