This year’s NBA All-Star Game marks the sixth time Los Angeles (or the greater L.A. area) has hosted the contest. To celebrate, let’s take a look back at the programs for the All-Star Games in the City of Angels. Generally it seems as if L.A. gets an All-Star Game once a decade, although there was a surprising two-decade pause between the last one at The Forum (1983) and the first one at the Staples Center (2004).

Note: Try as I could I was unable to find a good image for the cover for the 2011 All-Star Game at the Staples Center.
