Toronto is set to host the 2016 NBA All-Star Game from Feb. 12 – 14. Rappers Travis Scott and Future, along with Toronto Raptor Cory Joseph, DJ Drama and NBA legend Shaquille O’Neal are just a few of the names hosting events. The popular three-day event, happening at the Air Canada Centre, is expected to flood the downtown core with both locals and visitors alike.
Rob Marshall slings his equipment bag into the back of his pickup truck. School and work are behind him. Marshall then picks up his good friend and teammate Kasey Beirnes.
