The NBA All-Star Weekend is quickly approaching as basketball begins to take center stage this time of year.

The 2020 All-Star Weekend will take place in Chicago on Feb. 14 as the city will surely celebrate its rich basketball history and culture. It is the first time since 1988 that the Windy City is hosting the event, although this will be the first at the United Center.

Thirty-two years ago, Michael Jordan gave his home crowd a weekend to remember, taking home the MVP award and winning his second straight Dunk Contest in a memorable showdown with Atlanta Hawks star Dominique Wilkins.

Jordan was not the only future Hall of Famer to leave a lasting impression. Celtics star Larry Bird won his third and final 3-Point Contest in memorable fashion, walking off the court with his pointer finger in the air signaling victory before his final shot went through the net.

This year's All-Star Weekend will have its chance to stand out, too, and it will definitely have a Chicago feel to it as musical performances are scheduled to include Chicago natives Chance the Rapper, Common and Taylor Bennett.

Here's the complete schedule of the 2020 All-Star Weekend:
