Very carefully-worded statement from the NBA during its Board of Governors on Charlotte’s status as host of the 2017 All-Star game:

“During a media availability earlier today following the NBA’s Board of Governors meeting, Commissioner Adam Silver clarified that the NBA remains deeply concerned about its ability to successfully host the 2017 All-Star Game in Charlotte, North Carolina, in light of recent legislation that discriminates against the LGBT community. At no time did Adam affirm that the league would not move the All-Star Game; rather he stressed repeatedly that the legislation is problematic, that we feel it is best to engage with the community to work towards a solution, that change is needed and we are hopeful that it will occur.”

Quite the lawyerly interpretation of ‘clarify’— how about this—the NBA’s gonna stall until this whole HB2 thing blows over one way or the other.
