Did Commissioner Silver do it as a league decision or was he influenced change it due to politics? It seems he was influenced to move the game and punish Charlotte. The NBA game was moved without announcing a new location. Charlotte has been nothing but good for the NBA, even after former Hornets Owner George Shinn moved the team to New Orleans. The League felt Charlotte great city awarding another franchise (Bobcats) and was renamed Hornets after 2013-2014. Then to say Charlotte could possibly Host 2019 NBA All-Star Game. NBA Commissioner Silver has no problem playing in China where the records of human rights are awful. Why China and not Charlotte, we are talking basic rights. If one has been following North Carolina Governor Race, that means NBA counting on a new governor being elected and HB2 being overturned. The NBA is really punishing fans and City of Charlotte.
