Three NBA teams and counting say no to Trump…hotels
Donald Trump is the choice of the Electoral College, but his hotels won’t be the choice for at least three NBA teams. According to a report from ESPN, the Dallas Mavericks, Memphis Grizzlies, and Milwaukee Bucks will forego staying in Trump brand hotels to distance themselves from the president-elect, who known for making incendiary comments on tape and video about foreigners, women, and the disabled.
“Sources say that another Eastern Conference team contracted to stay at the Trump SoHo in New York this season has likewise already decided to switch to a different property in Manhattan when its current contract expires at season’s end and that the Trump association is among the factors for the switch.
ESPN contacted all 30 teams this week to ask about their travel plans in New York and other NBA cities that feature Trump-branded hotels, which include Chicago, Miami, Toronto and Washington.
Several teams that have stayed at the Trump SoHo in particular in the past told ESPN that they are not staying there this season but did not specifically attribute the switch to any political reason. Several more said that they’ve never stayed at Trump-branded hotels.”
There has been no shortage of NBA players taking a stance on Trump, most of them voicing their displeasure. LeBron James even said that if the Cleveland Cavaliers were to win another championship, he wasn’t sure if he would visit the White House with Trump in it.
