The NBA announced today that the Charlotte Hornets will host the 2019 All-Star game.

This announcement comes after the 2017 All-Star game was moved from Charlotte to New Orleans due to the North Carolina’s controversial HB 2, which prevented local governments from passing anti-discrimination ordinances for public places such as restaurants or hotels. The law was repealed this past March, and replaced with HB 142.

We’ll likely have more on this in the future, but until then, feel free to share your thoughts in the comments.
