Von Wafer of the Boston Celtics reacts after scoring against the Miami Heat on Feb. 13, 2011. It’s been four years since Von Wafer last played in the NBA, and, from the sound of it, that’s quite long enough for him, thanks. The 31-year-old shooting guard, a former McDonald’s All-American and second-round draft pick out of Florida State, last saw an NBA court with the Orlando Magic in May of 2012.
Where will the NBA hold the 2017 All-Star game? Charlotte? No. New Orleans? Probably. New York/Brooklyn or Chicago? Maybe. One more maybe: Las Vegas. Scott Kusher of The Advocate: The NBA held All-Star Weekend in Las Vegas in 2007. By all accounts, it was wild. I’d be surprised if the league returned the event to Las Vegas, but at this point, I’d really be surprised by any option besides New Orleans.
