Carmelo Anthony has recently been outspoken on social issues, both on social media and along with LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Paul onstage at the ESPY awards. With news Thursday that the NBA was moving the 2017 All-Star Game away from Charlotte because of a North Carolina law that targeted the LGBT community, the Knicks forward was again ready to chime in.
When asked about his turn toward activism, and if speaking out on an issue makes players more inclined to address other issues, Anthony said, Believe it or not, were always put in tough situations. Some things you can talk about, some things you cant talk about. I think the NBA has to decide where that line is and when to cross it. Its a big decision for the NBA to pull it away from Charlotte. I guess well see what happens from here now.
Steph Curry hails from Charlotte, and he described the NBAs decision as disappointing for the city in an interview with ESPNs SportsCenter. The Warriors guard added, I know the league is in a position where they have to make a decision, and [NBA Commissioner] Adam Silvers made one, and we support that.
But at the end of the day, I love my city, I love Charlotte, I love everything about it, I love the people there, and I really wanted to see them celebrate the game. Its unfortunate that they wont be able to do that.
Pacers forward Paul George had this to say to ESPNs Brian Windhorst: Im huge on keeping your word. Im not necessarily saying its bad for the NBA to move it. Charlotte is a growing city and the Hornets have picked that program up. Its a shame its possible that wed take that away from them.
