Mike Bresnahan, the L.A. Times beat writer covering the Los Angeles Lakers, has tweeted that Los Angeles will host the 2018 NBA All-Star Game.

Portland and the Trail Blazers have been campaigning for years for the showcase to come to Rip City. This announcement will prove the latest in a string of disappointments, including awarding the 2017 All-Star Game to Charlotte, North Carolina.
