05:48 PM ET 04.07 | Cleveland Cavaliers are battling it out with the Toronto Raptors to see who will receive the honor of hosting the 2016 NBA All-Star Game. I may be a little biased when it comes to the topic, but this shouldn't even be a discussion. Toronto has never hosted an All-Star Game since they entered the league in 1995, and the city has all the resources and requirements needed to make the event a success. Toronto is also popular city with the players, who usually have nothing but good things to say when visiting. I can also say with certainty, that the Toronto basketball fans will have the Air Canada Centre packed all weekend; if they show up to watch the Raptors, they'll definitely show up for the All-Star Game.

Ask Noah what he feels about Cleveland and he'll tell you the truth. It's about time that Canada gets an all star game.

Who wants to go to Cleveland in February, and navigate through a foot of snow to a basketball game?
