This talk about putting an NBA team in Vegas reminded me of the worst time I've ever had in Vegas, one of the worst I've ever had anywhere for that matter. The 2007 NBA All Star game weekend. A total nightmare. I stayed at the Wynn and saw two of the most spectacular fights in the casino that I've ever seen. It was Chinese New Years and many of the Asian guests were afraid to leave their rooms. I saw Steve Nash in the elevator and he said the same thing. He wasn't leaving his hotel room. There was almost a "Marshall Law" sense that prevaded the city that weekend.
When I got back, I was shocked to hear how little press coverage there was. Friends said that the media reports said the event was great. I was there and great is the last thing I'd call it.
