  • Chicago to host 2020 NBA All Star weekend reports say

According to The Vertical's Shams Charania, tomorrow's Bulls announcement at the United Center will reveal that Chicago has earned 2020 All-Star Weekend.

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 an NBA All-Star Game, in 1988, a young Michael Jordan wowed the crowd by dunking from the free throw line in the slam-dunk competition.

Reinsdorf's son Michael, the COO of the Bulls, quoted his father during the press conference, saying that his own son and Mayor Emanuel convinced him to prod the league to select Chicago for the game. "We understand the cultural impact that the All-Star Game will provide for Chicago".

Chicago first hosted All-Star Weekend in 1973. Los Angeles will host the event in 2018 and Charlotte will host in 2019, after the league found the city's partial bathroom legislation repeal to be sufficient enough. Chicago will be the center of the basketball universe come Winter of 2020.
