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.

I think the President can still make ends meet and probably care less

Holiday inn express has rooms.

And I, as a Trump supporter, will do my best to boycott all sponsors during televised games of these teams.

Not a big issue. Let them stay somewhere else.

LOL follow the NBA and these are three losers.....Ha ha ha all not worth watching to start with! Mark Cuban thinks he's the NBA's Jerry Jones (Dallas Cowboys)....he couldn't be a pimple on Jerry's ass!

I had a good friend, kind of free spirit guy, when I lived in the FL Keys. Hard working Joe lunchbox, he only read the sports section of the paper, throwing the rest away first. He only watched sports on tv.

When asked, he told me proudly, "Because there's no politics, murder, rape, robbery, or any of that crap in sports! It's just about man against man, Team vs. team! SPORTS! Who wants to drag themselves down with all the bad news?

Well, now i guess old George isn't as happy as he once was...

And that's really a regrettable situation. I hope "Sports" can get back to "game" and kick their politics back home in the off season.

I stopped watching The Shark Tank after Mark went with Hillary. He offered both Trump and Hillary 1 million dollars to be either ones running mate for VP. So I guess Hillary took the money. ROTFLMAO. (map)

These morons just don't get it the more they protest and buck the democratic process the more it bites them in the ass! Would love to see the NFL and NBA just fold up and disappear

Good for them. Stand up for what you believe, no matter what everybody else says.

What would these poor gentlemen do then, give me 'da ball coach. Sports is definitely a necessary evil in today's dumbed down society. We have to make everyone feel equally important

851 and the rest of your ilk, can it. The teams are practicing their rights. If you domt support someone why would you continue to put profits in that person's pocket? And please tell me one time over the last 8 years that you guys "stopped whining" and through your support behind the POTUS who won TWO elections by quite a comfy margin?

I'm sure that the Trump hotels will do fine without their occasional business.


Let's see if the teams change their minds in a year or so.

Hate to disagree bet Obama watched a lot of basketball game. But Trump will survive without their business. But I'm sure the players would prefer Trump Tower to Motel 6.
