Congratulations Bulls and NBA Fans of Chicago, it’s our time now! If you thought the NBA Lottery coming to Chicago was a big deal… well, I’ve got news for you.

Every year we say we’re going to fly or drive to the host city of the NBA All-Star Game, and every year we find ourselves at home. Well, in 2020, we can do both. (And for those of us with significant others, we can still celebrate Valentine’s Day and make it to that night’s event or after party.)

On  November 10th, NBA commissioner Adam Silver attended a media conference in the United Center, during which he announced that the NBA would be bringing its week of All-Star game activities and events to Chicago. Silver spoke at the media conference along with Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, Bulls President and Chief Operating Officer Michael Reinsdorf, Bulls Executive Vice President of Basketball Operations John Paxson, 27th Ward Alderman Walter Burnett Jr., and Chicago Sports Commission Executive Director Kara Bachman.

It will be the third All-Star game in Chicago in NBA history — the first since 1988, and the first in the United Center. According to the Chicago Bulls, the week’s community and charitable activities, parties and programs, and all-star game, will take place throughout the city. Featured sites include the West Side United Center campus, Navy Pier, the Wintrust arena and other venues. Save the date, because the game will be Feb. 16, 2020.

Do your thing Los Angeles and Charlotte… but in 2020, Chicago will show everyone how it’s really done. #SeeRed
