"We are honored that the National Basketball Association has selected Chicago to host All-Star 2020", said Reinsdorf. "Chicago is a global hub for sports, entertainment and culture". "I was here in 1988 attending law school when the All-Star Game was last here and they had a slam dunk contest with Dominique Wilkins and Michael Jordan that people are still talking about today and a fantastic All-Star Game as well".
