Chicago To Host 2020 NBA All-Star Game

Chicago To Host 2020 NBA All-Star Game

The NBA announced on Friday that Chicago has been selected as the host for NBA All-Star 2020.

The announcement featured numerous dignitaries, including Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, NBA Commissioner Adam Silver, and Bulls President and COO Michael Reinsdorf.

It will be the first time All-Star festivities are held in the city since 1988, when Michael Jordan dazzled the hometown crowd. Chicago also hosted the All-Star game in 1973; the East won that game as well, 104-84.




"Of course, it had a slam dunk championship with Dominique WIlkins and Michael Jordan, that people are still talking about today, and a fantastic All-Star Game as well", Silver said. "We look forward to being here".

The big difference between then and now, Silver said, is the game has become part of a series of week-long events. But Cleveland will have to wait until at least 2021 for its next NBA All-Star Game.

However, with the news of them hosting the NBA All-Star Game three years from now, it could lift their spirits and boost their confidence, which could lead to more inspired play in their upcoming games.
