Charlotte, N.C., is getting a second chance.
After moving the All-Star Game from the Queen City to New Orleans last season, the NBA on Wednesday announced the 2019 All-Star Game will take place Feb. 17 in the hive of the Hornets at Spectrum Center.
NBA Commissioner Adam Silver released a detailed statement regarding the league’s decision:
For three decades, the NBA has had a home in Charlotte. Generations of families have attended games there, and fans from many different walks of life have come together to share a passion for a team that is an anchor in the community.
However, prior to Tuesday’s practice in Cleveland in preparation for Wednesday’s NBA Finals Game 4 meeting with the Cavs, his signature shoe game had been weaker than 168 hours. Remember how the Under Armour Curry 2 lows got relentlessly roasted online? Now, that’s all about to change. Curry sported the yet-to-be-released black Under Armour Curry 4s, and it appears his sponsor has finally created some kicks as stylish and mature as Stephen’s game.

Curry rocked the white colorway of the 4s during Games 1 and 2 of the NBA Finals. They were an obvious upgrade from the 3s, which, despite his immense popularity, saw disappointing sales. It appears he’ll have their black counterparts on as the series shifts to the Midwest for at least two games. The black suede finish, understated branding, white outsole and gold accents give the 4s a nearly regal appeal that will make them a hit both on and off the court, something you simply couldn’t say of his previous models.

The black Under Armour Curry 4s look good — real good. They’re ready for the court and the club. It’s just another victory for the Dubs’ franchise player.
