NBA stars com­ing back to Chicago

Chicago Sun-Times - - BULLS BEAT - Joe Cowley

Chicago will host the 2020 NBA All- Star Game, a source con­firmed Thurs­day. The Bulls have sched­uled a news con­fer­ence at 2 p. m. Fri­day at the United Cen­ter. NBA com­mis­sioner Adam Sil­ver, Mayor Rahm Emanuel, Bulls pres­i­dent Michael Reins­dorf and VP of bas­ket­ball op­er­a­tions John Pax­son are all ex­pected to be in at­ten­dance.

It will be the first time the All- Star Game will be played in Chicago since 1988, when Michael Jor­dan dom­i­nated, not only win­ning the game’s MVP, but also beat­ing Dominique Wilkins in one of the more mem­o­rable dunk con­tests of all time.

Michael Jor­dan was named MVP of the NBA All- Star Game in 1988, the last time the event was held in Chicago.
