    Default NBA to move AllStar game from Charlotte due to HB2 legislation

    The NBA announced Thursday afternoon it would be moving the 2017 All-Star Game from Charlotte due to North Carolina’s anti-LGBT legislation.

    “The NBA has decided to relocate the 2017 All-Star Game from Charlotte with the hope of rescheduling for 2019,” the league said in a statement.

    Meanwhile, get ready to buy your NBA tickets for preseason games in China!!!!!!! The NBA - we can't successfully host our All Star in hostile climate created by a law requiring men to use men's washrooms - but we can absolutely have a great time in a society of organ harvesting, political oppression, banning of religions, torture, forced abortion, female infanticide, etc. All of those things are apparently compatible with the NBA's core values.
