Perhaps the National Basketball Association expects the 2021 event in a refurbished Fieldhouse.

Not only are they 16-11 on the season and have seemingly unearthed a new star in Victor Oladipo, but they've also been awarded the right to host the 2021 NBA All-Star Game, the 70 edition of the event.

The 2018 event will take place at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, which has monopolized All-Star weekend over the last decade and a half.

The Indiana Pacers said early Wednesday that the team would make a major announcement at 4 p.m Wednesday.

"50 crore people have voluntarily linked 81 crore bank accounts to Aadhaar cards". It was the third time the deadline for Aadhaar-PAN linkage was extended.

According to our sister station WISH-TV, the NBA Commissioner, Indiana Governor Holcomb, and Indianapolis Mayor Joe Hogsett are set to attend.

Silver previously told VigilantSports.com that 'The ball is in their court' for Indy to host All-Star Weekend. It most recently held the All-Star Game in 2011.

This will mark the second time the city of Indianapolis has hosted the NBA's premier exhibition game featuring the league's best players. They hosted it for the first time in 1953 at the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum in Fort Wayne, and then again in 1985 at the Hoosier Dome where Ralph Sampson, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and Magic Johnson helped the Western Conference win against the Eastern Conference's Julius Erving, Isiah Thomas, Larry Bird, and Michael Jordan.

The Pacers will play host to the 2021 NBA All-Star Game, which will be held in their home arena, Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis.
