BULLETS HOPE TO BID FOR '98 ALL-STAR GAME IF ARENA COMPLETE
Published March 28, 1995
The Bullets have told the NBA that they would like to host the All-Star Game in 1998 if construction of their proposed new arena begins on time, according to Richard Justice in this morning's WASHINGTON POST. Bullets Owner Abe Pollin hopes to break ground on the facility in August. If the downtown arena is completed on time, Pollin's position "as the league's senior owner" should help in securing the game. The franchise last held the All-Star Game in '80 (WASHINGTON POST, 3/28).
