Chicago receives 2020 NBA All-Star Game; Cleveland had been in running

But Cleveland will have to wait until at least 2021 for its next NBA All-Star Game.

ESPNChicago is reporting that the Chicago Bulls and National Basketball Association are expected to announce that the city will host the 2020 All Star Game, according to a league source.

Chicago last hosted the NBA All-Star Game in 1988.

The official announcement is expected to come Friday, with National Basketball Association commisoner Adam Silver and Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel expected to be in attendance.

Factory output slows to 3.8% in September
United Kingdom construction activity is worsening, data from the Office for National Statistics showed on Friday. Despite this, the UK's trade performance during the third quarter as a whole worsened, according to the ONS data.

The Windy City is finally getting another shot at the marquee event.

The big difference between then and now, Silver said, is the game has become part of a series of week-long events. Jordan also won the second of his back-to-back dunk contest championships with his iconic slam from the free-throw line.

"This is obviously a great day for our city and the Chicago Bulls", Bulls president and COO Michael Reinsdorf said.

Los Angeles is set to host the 2018 NBA All-Star Game, and Charlotte, who lost the 2017 game amid controversy over the state of North Carolina's controversial "bathroom bill", will host the 2019 contest.
