Last All-Star Game Hosted in the United Center: NEVER
Last All-Star Game in Chicago: 1988 (Chicago Stadium)
"The House that Jordan Built" and second biggest arena in the NBA deserves to host a future All-Star Game.
Not only is the arena the biggest in the United States and fully capable of hosting a huge event, it is absolutely prepared as well. With the newly refurbished 300-section that includes countless bars and clubs, even the fans in the nosebleeds will have the entertainment and style of those sitting courtside.
Along with its BMO Harris Club, Ketel One Club and the Bud Light Lounge, fans who want to take a break from the action won't be bored.
The basketball community in Chicago is arguably the most intelligent and devoted group when it comes to their hometown Bulls, and they are the ones that the NBA craves.
Unfortunately, Bulls owner Jerry Reinsdorf is having none of it. He doesn't want the All-Star Game in Chicago.
But that shouldn't stop David Stern.
Attending Bulls basketball games have been a long standing tradition for fans in Chicago; I'm sure they won't mind breaking the tradition in order to attend an All-Star Game.
