AFP News

New Orleans will host the 2014 NBA All-Star Game, league commissioner David Stern announced on Monday, returning the spectacle to the city just six years after it was staged there.

The 63rd NBA All-Star Game will be staged at New Orleans Arena on February 16, 2014. Next year's NBA All-Star Game will be staged in Houston, Texas.

"There's no better place to celebrate and showcase the NBA," Stern said. "Our 2008 NBA All-Star festivities proved a terrific experience for everyone involved and we anticipate 2014 will be even better."

New Orleans also will host the National Football League's Super Bowl next Febraury.

In 2008, NBA stars were among those who worked on service projects to help rebuild areas of New Orleans that were devastated by Hurricane Katrina before the All-Star Game, which the East won 134-128 over the West thanks to 27 points from All-Star Most Valuable Player LeBron James and 28 points from Ray Allen.
