It is the first basketball event at the Chicago Theatre and will take place on March 28. A half-court set will be placed on center stage, with front-row seats flanking the center-court circle.

The only other sporting events held at the Chicago Theatre have been UFC and MMA weigh-ins. 

In addition to a dunk and skills contest, the festivities include a Legends & Stars Shootout which pairs current high-school stars and famous alumni.
