Some of us have known since the Seattle All Star game. It's good to have so many ex Mercury employees in the league! Smile

Now let's hope Magic & Co. get the Sparks to host it in 2019.

The 28th is about a week later than this year. Maybe the season will be starting a little later.

I think it'll actually start earlier due to the World Championships starting at the end of September. I think the league will wrap up the season by August 25/26 and playoffs will end by September 22. Expect a condensed schedule, too.

I'm planning to go. Never been to Minnesota, and it will be my first All-Star Game.

Another 2 cent bet, that it turns into Team USA vs. WNBA All-Stars. Team USA will likely have a spring camp but little time to actually compete as a team before taking on the rest of the World, so it wouldn't be a surprise to use that wkend as a little tune up Idea

That doesn't sound off because it IS a WC year but I hope not...stars at the sun was Bor-Ing....the unofficial Radio city ASG was somewhat better but only somewhat

The NBA is going to a draft format for their 2018 All-Star Game.

Giving it to Minny is a great choice. Terrific fan base, and solid culture of support for WBB.
