The NBA pulled its 2017 All-Star Game from Charlotte last year after the passage of a controversial North Carolina law that prevented cities from instituting anti-discrimination ordinances.
The league could very well award its 2019 midseason showcase to the city as a way to trumpet the virtues it believes that since-repealed law threatened.
Commissioner Adam Silver said at a news conference Friday that Charlotte is under consideration to host the 2019 game now that HB2 has been repealed and replaced with a compromise bill. That move by the legislature last week already has prompted the NCAA to put North Carolina back in the mix to host its championship events, something that had been pulled from the table last August.
Jennings, who scored four points Thursday while picking up three assists and three rebounds, said he felt bad for Anthony most of all.
“I think it was just like a roller-coaster emotional roller-coaster for him this year with everything he had to deal with, which isn’t fair,” he said. “For a player to wake up every day and you’re hearing trade rumors and that you might be gone, this and that.”
The guard added it was “one of the wildest things” he’s seen during his eight-season career. In addition to the Melo rumors, he claimed the triangle offense tripped up players as well: “We Cheap Mitchell And Ness Jerseys were trying to learn an offense that guys didn’t really know.”
Jennings got out when he could and instead of going home in a few weeks, he’ll Cheap NFL Jerseys be playing for one of the top seeds in the Eastern Conference.
