Second Annual ABA Reunion Will be Held During All-Star Weekend in HoustonAll-Star Weekend is just around the corner. In addition to the Rookie-Sophomore Game on Friday night, All-Star Saturday Night (featuring Shooting Stars, the Skills Challenge, the Three Point Shootout and the Slam Dunk Contest) and the All-Star Game itself on Sunday, there will also be the second annual ABA "Ole School Reunion." I covered the ABA Reunion during last year's All-Star Weekend in Denver; here is a link to my HoopsHype story about that event:
This year's ABA Reunion is being held at the Houston Marriott Medical Center Hotel, which is located at 6580 Fannin Street. The following information comes from the official press release for the ABA Reunion:
Saturday, February 18th, 2006: Party with ABA basketball legends Moses Malone, Roland "Fatty" Taylor, James Silas, George Gervin and many, many more. Pictures taken with your favorite ABA/NBA sports celebrity. This can happen when you join us at Houston's Medical Center Marriott, in the ballroom, 8:00pm - 2am. Tickets are $50 in advance. Dance the night away. Entertainment provided by Houston's finest "ole school DJ." For ticket information contact Roland Taylor (713-796-0080), Marriott Medical Center Hotel.
This will be a night to remember. See you there.
Sunday, February 19th, 2006: Party again with the "Stars". The Marriott Medical Center Hotel provides an intimate setting to mix and mingle with ABA/NBA celebrities starting at 8:00 p.m. Tickets are $50 each in advance. For ticket information contact Roland Taylor, Marriott Medical Center Hotel (713-796-0080), or you can email Cheryl Maxwell (firstname.lastname@example.org).
I just spoke with Fatty Taylor and he mentioned that fans can come early to the Sunday event and watch the All-Star Game at the Marriott Sports Bar with the ABA legends before the post-game party, which will be held in the Marriott Grand Ballroom.
I will be writing daily All-Star Weekend reports for HoopsHype.com, so be sure to go there to find out what is going on behind the scenes in Houston.
