NBA: Steph for equality


SAN FRANCISCO (AP) – Golden State star Stephen Curry says he is disappointed to see sporting events pulled from his home state of North Carolina over a law some say can lead to discrimination against LGBT people.

And the two-time NBA MVP hopes lawmakers make changes to the so-called “bathroom bill’’ before more events follow the NBA’s All-Star game and the NCAA men’s basketball tournament out the door.

Curry, who grew up in Charlotte, told The Associated Press on Thursday he had mixed feelings about sporting events leaving the state. The NBA has pulled next year’s All-Star game out of Charlotte, and the NCAA this week began the process of relocating seven championships from North Carolina.

Curry says he is “all for equal rights and fair treatment.’’ He adds that “until some changes are made, this could be a recurring theme in North Carolina.’’
