Perhaps you’ve heard that Donald Trump is set to be the next President of the United States. Perhaps you’ve heard that some people aren’t thrilled with this idea. Well, here’s something you may not have heard: According to ESPN, at least three NBA teams have stopped staying at Trump-branded hotels. Among the confirmed teams are the Milwaukee Bucks.
Sources told ESPN.com that the Milwaukee Bucks, Memphis Grizzlies and Dallas Mavericks have moved away from Trump hotels in New York City and Chicago, which bear Donald Trump’s name through a licensing agreement.
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.
Sources say that the Bucks stayed at the Trump International Tower and Hotel in Chicago on a preseason trip to play the Bulls in early October, but met with complications when they tried to make an 11th-hour cancellation. Milwaukee, sources say, has already made other arrangements for its regular-season road games against the Bulls.
Despite being a onetime chairman of Trump Entertainment Resorts, Inc., Bucks co-owner Marc Lasry has recently been a high-profile supporter of Hillary Clinton—who, you may have heard, lost to Donald fucking Trump. No word yet on all the endless partisan bullshit this will likely stir up (let’s see those angry Facebook comments, folks!), distracting and dividing us for a few more moments as the end approaches ever closer, ever faster, ever more insidious and out in the open…
Anyway, here’s a video of Bango dunking off a 16-foot ladder.
