  • NBA says Charlotte is eligible to host 2019 All-Star Game

    Charlotte will be eligible to host the 2019 All-Star Game after a compromise deal to replace a North Carolina law that limited anti-discrimination protections for lesbian, gay and transgender people, NBA Commissioner Adam Silver said Friday. 'It's not a done deal yet,' Silver said. The league's Board of Governors discussed it during their meetings this week and made what Silver said was 'not an easy decision.' The league will develop an anti-discrimination policy that participating groups including the host sites, hotels and businesses would have to abide by before the 2019 game is committed to Charlotte again.

  • NBA says Charlotte is eligible to host 2019 All-Star Game

    Charlotte will be eligible to host the 2019 All-Star Game after a compromise deal to replace a North Carolina law that limited anti-discrimination protections for lesbian, gay and transgender people, NBA Commissioner Adam Silver said Friday. Charlotte was scheduled to host the game this year, but the NBA pulled it over its objection to the law known as the 'bathroom bill.' The Charlotte Regional Visitors Authority estimated the yanked event would have generated about $100 million in economic impact. Gay-rights advocates and the American Civil Liberties Union have denounced North Carolina legislation passed last week to undo HB2 as inadequate.

  • AP source: NBA board to discuss Charlotte as All-Star host

    A person with knowledge of the plans says the NBA will discuss whether to bring the 2019 All-Star Game to Charlotte at its Board of Governors meeting this week. The person tells The Associated Press that the NBA board was already planning to discuss the matter at its meeting Thursday, though it's not known if a decision will be made.

  • Heat visit Hornets in must-win situation for both

    Despite their playoff push hitting a few recent obstacles, the Miami Heat viewed themselves as being in a good position when they discussed the situation Tuesday afternoon. Then the Indiana Pacers won Tuesday night, pushing the Heat out of the top eight in the Eastern Conference, and a few more Miami losses could complicate matters for one of the league's hottest teams in the past two-plus months. Heading into a Wednesday visit to Charlotte to face the Hornets, the Heat have lost four of their past six games.
