NBA Pulls All-Star Game From North Carolina Over Anti-LGBT Legislation!

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayZportzLegal MattersPolitikBasketballNBAViral: NewsTransgenderLGBT

Way to go, NBA!

The NBA has had enough of North Carolina's anti-LGBT bullsh*t!

On Thursday, the Association announced that it will NOT be hosting the 2017 All-Star Game at Charlotte's Time Warner Cable Arena because of the state's controversial bathroom bill.

This comes less than a week after NC's lawmakers had a chance to change up HB2 — which notably forces transgender individuals to use the bathrooms associated with their biological sex, rather than the gender with which they identify — but instead left the law intact.

And now, Commissioner Adam Silver has had enough.

In a new statement, the NBA explained that they can't wait any longer for the awful legislation to change, saying:

"The NBA has decided to relocate the 2017 All-Star Game from Charlotte with the hope of rescheduling for 2019. Since March, when North Carolina enacted HB2 and the issue of legal protections for the LGBT community in Charlotte became prominent, the NBA and the Charlotte Hornets have been working diligently to foster constructive dialogue and try to effect positive change. We have been guided in these discussions by the long-standing core values of our league. These include not only diversity, inclusion, fairness and respect for others but also the willingness to listen and consider opposing points of view."

The basketball league also explained that the discriminatory bill does not uphold the NBA's values:

Kendall Jenner Attends Rumored BF Jordan Clarkson's Basketball Game

Kendall Jenner and Jordan Clarkson

Kendall Jenner continues to keep us guessing about her relationship with Jordan Clarkson.

ICYMI: The 24-year-old Lakers player kept it coy last week and neither confirmed or denied dating the KUWTK star when asked by Extra at the ESPYS. The two have reportedly been "casually dating" since earlier this spring.

On Sunday, the 20-year-old certainly added fuel to those rumors as she sat directly behind the bench supporting Clarkson at his basketball game. How girlfriend-y of her!

Photogs snapped some pics as Kenny looked focused on the game (or on her phone…), which also was played by Khloé Kardashian's ex James Harden and the always-controversial Nick Young.

At one point you can see Young whispering something apparently funny in Jordan's ear as K.J. looks their way in the background.

The model looked casual in a black crop top, denim shorts, a Saint Laurent black sailor hat, and one eye on her maybe man piece.

Interesting!!

We don't know about you, but we're certainly starting to be sold on this rumor! What do U think??

Ever since the athlete survived his overdose in Nevada last year, he has been seen numerous times with drugs and alcohol.

Well now, the NBA star has filed his response, and for once, the two are on the same terms!

According to documents, Odom pretty much mimicked Kardashian's paperwork by listing their date of separation as December 13, 2013; by agreeing to award spousal support to the other party; and by agreeing to pay lawyer fees.

The two have a prenup and have already worked out a property settlement.

With all of this in place, Khloé and Lamar will soon officially be DUNZO!

The basketball player infamously paraded around shirtless after the team's victory — in the club in Vegas, on the plane to Cleveland, even on the parade route the team took through their hometown just days later in front of millions of fans.

Well, now, a company called Fresh Brewed Tees has picked up the slack and gave J.R. his shirt back — kind of!

They have commissioned replicas of Smith's numerous upper body tattoos, slapped 'em on a t-shirt, and they're selling the shirts (for $35 per)!

The only problem? Well, they
