According to ESPN, the National Basketball Association is expected to announce on Friday that Chicago will hold its 2020 All-Star Game. The person spoke Thursday on the condition of anonymity because an official announcement has not been made.
While the Bulls or National Basketball Association has yet to confirm, the team has scheduled a news conference for Friday featuring personnel from the team and the City of Chicago.
It will be the first All-Star Game played in Chicago since 1988 and the first time it's ever been held at the United Center. The hiatus looks to be coming to an end. Chicago has only hosted the game once before that, doing so 15 years earlier in 1973. He has since been passed by Jordan, Kobe Bryant and the current record-holder LeBron James.
The Chicago Bulls may not have a lot to cheer about lately, but things will definitely change soon with some good news for them. The festivities in 2020 will mark the first time the city has hosted a major league All-Star game since 2003.
