Stephen Curry said he is disappointed to see sporting events pulled from his home state of North Carolina over a law that limits the legal protection of LGBT people. And the two-time NBA MVP for the Golden State Warriors hopes lawmakers make changes to the so-called “bathroom bill” before more major events follow the NBA’s All-Star Game and the NCAA men’s basketball tournament out the door.
Curry, who grew up in Charlotte and played college basketball at nearby Davidson, said Thursday he has mixed feelings about sporting events leaving the state. The NBA has pulled next year’s All-Star Game out of Charlotte, and the NCAA this week began the process of relocating seven championships from North Carolina, including the opening weekend of the men’s basketball tournament.
