FILE - In this Jan. 24, 2013 file photo, New Orleans Hornets NBA team owner Tom Benson speaks at a news conference announcing that the NBA basketball team's name will change from the Hornets to the Pelicans, in New Orleans. One of the people most responsible for bringing NBA All-Stars back to the Big Easy this weekend is an 86-year-old man who wasn't that into basketball for much of his life. He is Tom Benson. And in New Orleans, NBA fans and community leaders are grateful the Pelicans owner finally came around. (AP Photo/Gerald Herbert, File)
