The 2017 NBA All-Star Game originally planned for Charlotte will be relocated, the league announced today.
The NBA took the unprecedented move to move the weekend of festivities due to North Carolina’s stance on transgender and the LGBT community.
The NBA PR team sent global emails to the media and sent that very release out on Twitter, explaining the situation.
