NBA Asked to Move 2017 ASG from Charlotte to Atlanta


The Atlanta City Council is asking the NBA to move the 2017 All-Star Game from Charlotte to Atlanta after the North Carolina General Assembly passed House Bill 2, repealing portions of Charlotte’s non-discrimination ordinance.

During a committee hearing on Tuesday, the resolution was introduced in Atlanta.

“We appreciate the invitation but are hopeful that the city of Charlotte and the state of North Carolina can work through their differences far in advance of the 2017 All-Star Game,” NBA spokesman Mike Bass said about the proposal.
