Chicago to host 2020 NBA All-Star Game

It has been reported that the team will hold a press conference on Friday, to announce that they will host the 2020 NBA All-Star Game inside the United Center, according to K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune.

But as the Cavs learned on Thursday, it will be another Midwest city hosting the 2020 All-Star Game.

The official announcement is expected to come Friday, with National Basketball Association commisoner Adam Silver and Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel expected to be in attendance.

The last time Chicago hosted the event was 1988 when Michael Jordan won All-Star Game MVP.

After Wilkins threw down a windmill jam, Jordan walked to the opposite end of the floor, came running back as the crowd roared, took off at the foul line, clutched in the air and threw it down. Chicago has only hosted the game once before that, doing so 15 years earlier in 1973.

Baseball held its Midsummer Classic at the White Sox's home on the South Side that year. Los Angeles Lakers center Kareem Abdul Jabbar also became the all-time leading scorer in All-Star Game history.
