Los Angeles Lakers center Kareem Abdul Jabbar also became the all-time leading scorer in All-Star Game history.

A person familiar with the situation says the National Basketball Association will hold the 2020 All-Star Game in Chicago. The Windy City will play host to the annual weekend of events in 2020, with an official announcement expected to take place Friday.

NY has hosted All-Star Weekend a record five times. 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. The East defeated the West that night, with Bulls legend Michael Jordan earning MVP honors for the superstar showcase.

However, with the news of them hosting the NBA All-Star Game three years from now, it could lift their spirits and boost their confidence, which could lead to more inspired play in their upcoming games.
