Chicago, Illinois will be the venue for the 2020 NBA All-Star Game for the third time in history and the first time ever at the United Center.

2020 NBA All-Star Game Overview
Now the NBA will once again tweak the format for this year. The first three quarters will be treated and scored as three separate games. Winners will assign money to their favorite charity causes. Subsequently, a cumulative score will be posted after three periods. Additionally, there will be a target score of 24 to honor the late great Kobe Bryant. Certainly, the new format will have gamblers’ heads spinning. That is why many will keep it simple and wager on the offshore betting totals.
Specifically, the horrific and tragic death of Kobe Bryant and his daughter in a helicopter crash last month will weigh heavily on all. There will be several tributes and honors that are tied into the entire All-Star weekend.
