NBA Commissioner Adam Silver said Thursday that if North Carolina’s LGBT law remains unchanged, the 2017 All-Star Game would have to be moved from Charlotte.

Silver’s comments on the state’s controversial House Bill 2 came at the Associated Press Sports Editors’ commissioner meetings Thursday, according to attendees. Earlier in the day, Silver again called the law “problematic” for the league as it stands, but he said he’s confident state lawmakers will “do the right thing.”

“We’ve been, I think, crystal clear a change in the law is necessary for us to play in the kind of environment that we think is appropriate for a celebratory NBA event,” Silver said at the APSE event.

NC should preemptively kick their teams out of the state & tell them they can't play there anymore.
Let them beg to come back.

I've relocated my money elsewhere -- away from the NBA.

Better yet, charge them for all the money taxpayers had to help pay for THEIR new stadium/arena/whatever.

with a nearly 87% LGBTWTFBBQ clientele, I totally understand his pont of view. If it was like less than 3% I'd think he was getting involved in politics rather than playing BBall.

I don't care about basketball but I thought Dennis Rodman had retired. Do they have some other cross dressing players that feel the need to use the women's restroom? Does Silver identify as a woman or something?

I am so glad the US has solved all of it's other pressing issues so crap like this can be front and center.

This is fascism. When business attempts to enforce government edicts for total control over the population it is called fascism.

This is a wakeup call for adults to quit watching grown men play kids games for ridiculous sums of money.

And the really sad part is that, to the best of my knowledge, the bill doesn't prohibit gender confused bathrooms. It merely states that the restroom owner may make that decision. In short, it's a bill for freedom of choice for the owner of the restroom.

I WISH this was the NFL who is subsidized by the federal government, that would be the ultimate irony.

I'm sure that the vast majority of NBA players were greatly upset by the law. They definitely seem like the types that would be big on transgender rights.

Wait... the all-star game? lol.

You are quoting it for the wrong reason. The NBA isn't banning people living in North Carolina from attending NBA games. As well, it isn't disbanding or moving the Charlotte Bobcats.

Maybe if Adam Silver's daughter was in the bathroom when some guy who happens to feel feminine that day goes into the bathroom with her he might feel different.

It's threatening to remove the chance for people from NC to see the ASG in Charlotte (refusing to serve in Charlotte) if the people don't bow to the NBA's beliefs.

Tell me how that is different than refusing to make a cake.

Nobody is banning anybody from doing anything. This law gives business owners the right to control their own bathrooms. If you have XY chromosomes and a cock and balls, you use the men's room. If you have XX chromosomes and a pussy, you use the women's restroom. It's pretty fucking simple.

I was comparing the two actions: NBA action vs. "Cake Makers" action. As well, the law isn't simply about the bathroom.

1, Basketball is fucking gay
2. Move the game to your alternate location. Only way to see what happens is to do it and let the fans vote with their wallets.
3. Everyone's an activist these days

It mirrors the federal statutes: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Protected_class

California takes it further:



In addition, California state law also prohibits discrimination based on:

Race
Color
National origin
Religion
Sex (including pregnancy, childbirth, and related medical conditions)
Disability: Physical or mental
Age (40 and older)
Genetic information
Marital status
Sexual orientation and identity
AIDS/HIV
Medical condition
Political activities or affiliations
Military or veteran status
Status as a victim of domestic violence, assault, or stalking

Yes this stupid love of deviants and criminals is getting people killed. At least tolerating criminal actions by blacks.

I would love to see the NC governor have a press conference where he (she) points the direction away from NC. See ya Mr Silver.

PS.....if they got state taxpayer money, present a bill for that.
