The news that the NBA is officially moving the 2017 NBA All-Star game from Charlotte to a new location has made huge waves ever since its announcement this week. The game is aired annual on TNT, a division of Turner Broadcasting. So officials with Turner Sports have released a statement on behalf of the network expressing the company’s view on the move. The statement below comes directly from those officials.
“At Turner, and our parent company Time Warner, diversity in all its forms is core to our value system and to the success of our company. Laws to the contrary go against our fundamental belief of equality and inclusion for all individuals. We fully support the NBA’s decision to relocate the 2017 All-Star Game and all of the weekend’s events originally scheduled to be held in Charlotte, North Carolina. The annual All-Star Game and accompanying weekend competitions are viewed by millions of fans every year on TNT and we look forward to working with the league to once again produce a memorable and entertaining event.”
