NOTES: In Orlando, Tim Povtak reports NBA Commissioner David Stern is “expected Saturday to reiterate his belief that Central Florida again will play host to all-star weekend if a new [arena] becomes a reality in the near future.” Stern wants to make Orlando “part of a small rotation of warm-weather cities that will hold” the game (ORLANDO SENTINEL, 2/16)....With New Orleans hosting the ’08 All-Star Game, 15 people including SMG Regional VP Doug Thornton and Greater New Orleans Sports Foundation President & CEO Jay Cicero are in Las Vegas to observe all aspects “involved in staging” the event (TIMES-PICAYUNE, 2/16).
