ESPN.com is reporting that the NBA has awarded New Orleans the 2014 all-star game. The last time the Hornets did this, it was a monster success.  Not surprising, since New Orleans is, of course, a party town.

Let the good times roll!  New Orleans Resurgent!

Nice! How does the ticketing goes? Any priority for season ticket holders, NOLA residents, etc?

My bet in advance for the Hornets all-star rep...Al Farooq Aminu or Jason Smith! You heard it here first!

February 14th, 2014 through February 16th, 2014. It'll be set up like last time according to current thinking: Jam Session in the Convention Center, the typical weekend programs, charity events (NBA Cares). It's not 100% that it'll be in the Arena, but it seems to be the current thinking for a number of reasons, not the least of which is the then-recent renovations to the Arena. More details to come.

I do believe STH are alloted some. Not sure how they are doled out.
