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.
