When North Carolina passed a bill that denied LGBT people protections, it caused a dilemma for the NBA -- should the league move the 2017 All-Star Game from Charlotte? Steph Curry of the Golden State Warriors was wishy-washy on the issue, basically saying nothing. Thankfully, former player and now analyst Charles Barkley is more forceful: "I think the NBA should move the All-Star game from there next year. As a black person I'm against any form of discrimination, against whites, Hispanics, gays, lesbians, however you want to phrase it. It's my job, with the position of power that I'm in and being able to be on television, I'm supposed to stand up for the people who can't stand up for themselves."

We examine the continuing controversy, plus look at whether baseball players should wear dresses.
