The NBA is bringing the All-Star game to Chicago for the first time since Michael Jordan dazzled his home crowd. The person spoke Thursday on the condition of anonymity because an official announcement has not been made. The league will officially announce the news on Friday, with National Basketball Association commissioner Adam Silver and Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel expected to attend.

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. The NHL last held its All-Star game in Chicago in 1991. After a deal between the team and city to upgrade "The Q" was temporarily put on hold, construction on the project began in September - just beating the Sept. 15 deadline the National Basketball Association had given the Cavs to keep Cleveland in consideration for the 2020 or 2021 All-Star Game. Jordan was also the dunk contest champion that year.
