It's NBA All-star weekend again in the Big Easy. President and CEO of the Greater New Orleans Sports Foundation Jay Cicero says they didn’t have much time to plan because they only found out they were hosting last year.

Jindal says this would be an appropriate way to memorialize such a significant figure in LSU and Louisiana history. Tiger Rag Editor Luke Johnson doesn't see this happening.
