The news that Houston would be getting the All-Star Game in 2013 actually leaked this past summer, but today, the NBA officially confirmed it: “The 62nd NBA All-Star Game will be played on Sunday, Feb. 17, at the Toyota Center, which will also host the NBA Rising Stars Challenge and NBA All-Star Saturday Night presented by State Farm. NBA All-Star Jam Session, the hugely successful interactive basketball celebration, will be held at the George R. Brown Convention Center. ‘Houston is a spectacular sports city, and for one week it will be the basketball capital of the world,’ said NBA Commissioner David Stern. ‘NBA All-Star is a magnificent celebration of our game, and I want to thank the city and the Rockets for welcoming us once again.’ The 2013 game will mark the third NBA All-Star celebration in Houston. The city also hosted the event in 1989 and in 2006.”
