Play

The top players in professional basketball will meet in New Orleans Sunday night for the annual NBA All-Star game. The location is significant because the game was originally scheduled for Charlotte, but the league moved the game to Louisiana because of North Carolina's so-called "bathroom bill," House Bill 2.

Here & Now's Meghna Chakrabarti speaks with sports analyst Mike Pesca (@pescami), host of the daily podcast The Gist, about that decision and how the game will shape up.

This segment aired on February 16, 2017.
