he NBA is going "all-in'' with its All-Stars.

The 2007 NBA All-Star game is headed to Las Vegas, the first time a city without a franchise has been chosen to host the event.

The festivities will take place just off the Strip, at the Thomas & Mack Center on the UNLV campus.

Commissioner David Stern called it "a merger between the basketball capital of the world and the entertainment capital of the world'' during a news conference Friday while downplaying any concern about linking the image-conscious NBA with Sin City and gambling.

"If I were concerned, I wouldn't be doing it,'' he said.
