NBA 2019: Charlotte As A Possible Host
According to The Seattle Times, Charlotte has allegedly agreed to abide by the league's anti-discrimination policy that will be participated by groups including host sites, hotels, and businesses before the 2019 game. Furthermore, NBA's Charlotte Hornets has also released their statement saying that the city, its fans, and the business establishments remain extremely enthusiastic in support of hosting. That said, North Carolina's Republican legislative leaders have added that whatever the hosting agreement between the NBA and Charlotte businesses would be okay for them.
Moreover, as per Reuters, the NBA Commissioner remains confident that given their deep roots in North Carolina, an All-Star Game in Charlotte could be a powerful platform for promoting their vision of equality and inclusion. Previously, as the 2017 All-Star game has been set to another city, the league said that Charlotte could still host the 2019 game provided that there will be an appropriate resolution to their concern.
