National Basketball Association fans know the All-Star week is a really special occasion where the superstars from around the league gather in one city for one week for several events, so cities from around the United States of America would love to have the opportunity to host the event.

This year's All-Star Game is being played at Staples Center in Los Angeles.

Indianapolis last hosted the NBA's All-Star Game in 1985.

Indianapolis is the city of choice for the 2021 NBA All-Star Game. Indiana Pacers owner Herb Simon, Indianapolis mayor Joe Hogsett, and Governer Eric Holcomb are expected to be in attendance.

While Cavs officials would not admit that that was a factor, CEO Len Komoroski said, "We continue to work closely with the league regarding Cleveland's bid to host an All-Star Game and remain excited and encouraged that Cleveland will be awarded one of the upcoming games". It most recently held the All-Star Game in 2011. IN also hosted the third-ever All-Star game, although it was held in Fort Wayne.

That means that earliest Quicken Loans Arena, which is set to finish renovations in time for the start of the 2019-2020 season, can host an All-Star game is 2022. That was in April, 2016 when he was at The Fieldhouse to watch the NCAA Women's Final Four.

This will mark the second time the city of Indianapolis has hosted the NBA's premier exhibition game featuring the league's best players.
