The NBA announced on Friday that Chicago has been selected to host NBA All-Star 2020, which will take place at the United Center, home of the six-time NBA champion Chicago Bulls. NBA All-Star Game 2017 in New Orleans reached fans in 215 countries and regions in 49 languages.

"We are honored that the National Basketball Association has selected Chicago to host All-Star 2020", said Reinsdorf. The person spoke Thursday on the condition of anonymity because an official announcement has not been made. He was joined by Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Bulls President and Chief Operating Officer Michael Reinsdorf.

He has since been passed by Jordan, Kobe Bryant and the current record-holder LeBron James. The NHL last held its All-Star game in Chicago in 1991.
