3 NBA Teams REFUSING To Stay At Trump Towers – INCOMING BOYCOTT!

Politics and sports really don’t belong together — people don’t watch football or basketball games to be preached at about the latest liberal outrage du jour. Yet athletes just can’t seem to get the message. The latest comes from the NBA, where three teams have decided to boycott Trump Towers.

The Milwaukee Bucks, Memphis Grizzlies and Dallas Mavericks have all announced that they will not stay at any hotel owned or licensed by Donald Trump. The goal is to send a message that they do not support his election as president.

Bucks co-owner Marc Lasry has two children that have both worked in politics: his daughter served under Rahm Emanuel, while his son worked for Valerie Jarrett. Lasry, along with outspoken Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, endorsed Hillary Clinton.

Cuban specifically was one of Trump’s biggest critics throughout the election, even predicting that if Trump won, the economy would tank. “I have my Trump hedge on. In the event Donald wins, I have no doubt in my mind the market tanks,” he said. “And so I literally have put on more than a 100 percent hedge that I’ll put on stronger.” Cuban, of course, ended up being wrong.

Lasry and Cuban aren’t the only people in the NBA to have expressed their disapproval of Trump. Several coaches have also spoken out, including Detroit’s Stan Van Gundy, Golden State’s Steve Kerr and San Antonio’s Gregg Popovich. Popovich specifically referred to Trump’s campaign as “xenophobic, homophobic, racist, misogynistic” and argued that electing Trump meant that Americans “ignored all those values that we would hold our kids accountable for.”
