Having the NBA All-Star weekend in Atlanta was probably not the best idea.

Last week, NBA commissioner Adam Silver assured people that fans would be deterred from going to Atlanta because there would be no official events being hosted by the league in the surrounding area.

“We don’t want people to gather for events around this All-Star. There will be absolutely no social functions in Atlanta. No ticketed events. No parties. It is a made-for television event at this point, and it’s largely in Atlanta because that’s where Turner Sports is located who will host this event … that’s why we are there, so we agree with the mayor.”

Unfortunately, club promoters have been promoting All-Star weekend parties for weeks and the city is already packed with people.

According to people on Twitter, Instagram models have been spotted sleeping in cars and Uhaul vans because hotels are full.
