NBA Commish: Move All-Star Game if NC Doesn’t Fix Law

National Basketball Association commissioner Adam Silver said Thursday that North Carolina must make changes to its controversial law prohibiting anti-discrimination protections for gay and transgender individuals if the league is going to keep its 2017 All-Star Game in Charlotte. “We’ve been, I think, crystal clear, that a change in the law is necessary to play in the kind of environment that we think is appropriate for a celebratory NBA event,” he said during a meeting with reporters, adding that setting a deadline at the moment would be counterproductive.
