Why Atlanta won't get NBA All-Star game anytime soon

Friday, February 14th

Atlanta Hawks CEO Steve Koonin joined Dukes & Bell to talk about the NBA All-Star game this weekend, and will Atlanta get the event anytime soon?

Koonin told the guys there is a conflict with the all-star game.

 “If you look out your window there are 50 thousand young people in Atlanta for Cheer sport which is booked multiple years in Atlanta and this all-star weekend is set in stone.” Koonin said “We have one of the largest conventions of the year booked on the same weekend as All-Star so we can’t even bid.”
