It’s never been held outside the USA before.
And in 2016 the N-B-A all-star game is coming to Toronto.
Mayor Rob Ford says he’s thrilled the city will host the league’s annual event.
Ford says the all-star game will be a terrific showcase for the city – with an estimated economic gain of $100-million dollars.
N-B-A deputy commissioner Adam Silver made the announcement today in Toronto.
And ahead of their 20th anniversary, the Toronto Raptors have announced a partnership with Grammy award winning entertainer “Drake.”
He has been unveiled as the team’s global ambassador.
