From the AP wire:
LAS VEGAS (AP) _ The 2007 NBA All-Star game will be played in Las Vegas, making it the first city without an NBA franchise to host the event.
Commissioner David Stern made the announcement Friday, calling the game "a merger between the basketball capital of the world and the entertainment capital of the world.''
The game will be played at the Thomas & Mack Center on the UNLV campus.
Casinos will not take bets on any All-Star events under a ban proposed by the NBA and approved by state gambling regulators.
