If the previous report — that the NBA is “on brink” of moving the 2017 All-Star game from Charlotte” — weren’t clear enough…

Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports:

Without any movement by state legislators in North Carolina to change newly enacted laws targeted at the LGBT community, the NBA is pulling the 2017 All-Star Game out of Charlotte, league sources told The Vertical.

A formal announcement on the NBA’s withdrawal out of Charlotte is expected as soon as this week, league sources said Thursday.

This is a good move.
