The Charlotte Hornets were not the best team on the court last season. But the team’s on-the-court performance didn’t come into play with the big news this morning.
The Hornets have been named as the host city of the 2017 NBA All-Star Game. It was first reported by Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer.
The NBA and the Hornets have yet to confirm the report. However, the news is expected to be forthcoming.
With this news, it will be three straight teams in the Eastern Conference to host the game. This past February, the game was in Madison Square Garden in New York City and will be at Air Canada Centre in Toronto, ON in 2016.
This will be the Hornets second time ever to host the game, as they previously hosted the game in 1991 at the Charlotte Coliseum. In that game, the Eastern Conference won 116-114 with Philadelphia 76ers forward Charles Barkley being named MVP.
Hornets owner Michael Jordan was a three-time MVP of this game.
