To all the players, media and fans from around the world who have come to our humble burg for NBA All-Star Weekend: a most hearty welcome!
We Chicagoans may not have an NBA team, but we love the game and, besides, have everything you could ever want in a host city.
Hot food? Yes! Temperatures in the teens and snow everywhere? Well, yes. The delightful No. 20 Madison bus to convey you from downtown to the United Center? Indeed and you’re welcome.
OK, fine, enough with the shenanigans. We have an NBA team, but only in the loosest interpretation of the phrase.
