Pre-Gamin’: 2021 NBA All-Star Events (5:30 CT) and Game (7:00 CT) – Lineups, Broadcast Info …

During All-Star Weekend in 2020, the Chicago Bulls had zero representatives in the big-game despite hosting the event. Embarrassing? Definitely. Then, on national television, a bunch of angry Bulls fans chanted for ownership to fire the GarPax regime. Even more embarrassing? You know it.

Now, one year later, the Bulls franchise sits with a new front office, a new coaching staff, and their first All-Star since 2017. Not to mention, they are playing the best basketball we have seen in years. The work is far from over, and the Bulls have a long way to go until they’re truly competitive again, but this is a good start. What a difference a year can make.
