NBA Commissioner Adam Silver announced that Indianapolis has been selected to host The 70th NBA All-Star Game -- Sunday, Feb. 14, 2021.
Indianapolis will follow Los Angeles in 2018, Charlotte in 2019 and Chicago in 2020 as All-Star host. The NBA All-Star Game will be played at Bankers Life Fieldhouse, home of the Indiana Pacers.
Indianapolis is also hosting an upcoming All-Star lineup of events. The Big Ten football championship through 2021, return of the Big Ten men's basketball tournament in 2020. The NCAA Men's Final Four in 2021. The College Football Playoff championship in 2022, and now the NBA All-Star game.
Since the birth of the All-Star game in 1951, Detroit has only hosted twice. Once in 1959 at Olympia Stadium, and then at the Pontiac Silverdome in 1979.
Hopefully the Detroit Pistons can get the nod for NBA All-Star 2022. With the new state-of-the-art Little Caesars Arena, new hotels downtown and around the metro area, and tons of indoor/outdoor activities - Detroit is ready.
