(Cleveland) - All eyes in the sports world were on Cleveland today, as the NBA announced that they will be holding the 2022 NBA All Star Game at the (then) completely renovated Quicken Loans Arena in downtown Cleveland.
NBA Commissioner Adam Silver made the official announcement, then made way for Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert and a string of local notables, such as Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson, County Executive Armond Budish, and Representative Marsha Fudge.
The game in 2022 will be just part of a week-long list of related activities in downtown Cleveland surrounding the All Star event, in which the local economy will reportedly take in an additional 100 million tourism dollars.
