Yes, the NBA has moved NBA All Star Weekend 2017 from Charlotte because of their transgender bathroom law North Carolina won’t change. If the law does change in the future, 2019 will be in Charlotte. This makes things a bit tricky for promoters, they locked in their venues, got the hosts ready and now have to make the change to New Orleans. It’s not like New Orleans isn’t the perfect place for parties, in 2014 they did a really good job with the event. NBA All Star Weekend 2017 New Orleans parties will be amazing, imagine having a second change at putting together parties for one of the biggest weekends around!?
The only concern is we haven’t got any information on any real solid NBA All Star Weekend 2017 New Orleans parties, which is weird. Maybe promoters are still struggling to find venues or the hosts haven’t committed. Either way, we will keep searching for the best All Star Weekend parties for us to recommend. Stay tuned and stay focused, New Orleans will deliver an epic weekend.
NBA ALL STAR WEEKEND HISTORY IN NEW ORLEANS:
New Orleans last hosted NBA All-Star in 2014, when the Eastern Conference overcame an 18-point deficit to post a 163-155 victory, snapping a three-game losing streak. Kyrie Irving scored 15 of his team-high 31 points in the fourth quarter and handed out a game-high 14 assists on his way to capturing MVP honors. Carmelo Anthony added 30 points for the East, while Kevin Durant and Blake Griffin each finished with 38 points for the West.
The 2008 NBA All-Star Game in New Orleans marked the city’s first major sporting event since Hurricane Katrina. In addition to the East’s 134-128 victory and LeBron James’ MVP performance, more than 2,500 members of the NBA family participated in 10 local service projects across New Orleans as part of the inaugural NBA Cares All-Star Day of Service, now an annual tradition and a highlight of the league’s All-Star festivities.
