Chicago Officially Named as Host of 2020 NBA All-Star Game

The NBA announced Friday Chicago's United Center will host the 2020 NBA All-Star Game.

Attending the Friday announcement are NBA Commissioner Adam Silver, Bulls President Michael Reinsdorf, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, and 27th Ward Alderman Walter Burnett, Jr., among others. "We look forward to being here".

It was announced that both Navy Pier and Wintrust Arena, the new downtown home of DePaul basketball, will host events around the game. In 1973 and 1988, the games were played at the Chicago Stadium.

The Windy City is finally getting another shot at the marquee event. But Cleveland will have to wait until at least 2021 for its next NBA All-Star Game.

What YouTube's Going to Do About Those Disturbing Videos That Target Kids
The videos already can't make money if they are flagged, the company said, but it will now attempt to chase them off the site. YouTube will be using its team of moderators to help sift through content and flag any videos that may be inappropriate.

For the first time in three decades, the stars of the National Basketball Association will make their way to the Windy City in February for their mid-season showcase. "The city of Chicago is in a different place and able to host the All-Star week".
