In just under two months, the NBA world will center around the city of Chicago as it hosts the 2020 NBA All-Star Weekend. The city will host numerous events leading up to the weekend where the game will take center stage on Sunday night and close it all out.
While the city will offer plenty of activities and activations all around throughout the week, it will add some local music to the game itself.
The league announced on Thursday that Chicago native Chance the Rapper will headline the NBA All-Star Game Halftime Show:
