If the game had remained in Charlotte, it would have been the second time that Charlotte hosted the All-Star Game. The city previously hosted in 1991 at the now-demolished Charlotte Coliseum.On August 19, 2016, the NBA chose the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans, Louisiana, home of the New Orleans Pelicans, to host the All-Star Game after it was pulled from Charlotte because of the controversy surrounding North Carolina's "bathroom bill", commonly known as HB2. The 2017 All-Star Game became the first major sporting event in the United States to be relocated for political reasons since 1990.
