The 2016 NBA All Star Weekend will be held outside the U.S., as the focus of the league will be on Toronto for the All Star Weekend.  

With the All Star Game heading to New Orleans for 2014, and either New York or Brooklyn (they still haven't sorted out co-hosting duties) the following year, Toronto has won the next available spot in 2016.  This will be the first time All Star Weekend will be hosted by the Toronto Raptors and their city. 

 

Multiple sources told the Toronto Sun Tuesday that the Raptors are on the verge of landing the 2016 NBA all-star weekend.

An official announcement is expected within the next week that will reveal further details of how one of the sport's biggest weekends will tie in to the Toronto Raptors' 20th-anniversary season.
