According to John Gonzalez of The Ringer, NBA owners donated more to Republicans than Democrats with a total of $14.9 million prior to November presidential election.
These owners support a man who stated he did more for black folks than any other president yet there are no receipts. The non-tailored suit-wearing man has yet to show up in black communities where poverty and lack of economic opportunity exist.
SI NBA writer Sam Amico reported “Furthermore, five NBA owners have contributed directly to President Donald Trump — the Los Angeles Lakers’ Jim Buss, Orlando Magic’s Dan DeVos, New York Knicks’ James Dolan, Houston Rockets’ Tilman Fertitta and San Antonio Spurs’ Juliana Holt. Meanwhile, the Milwaukee Bucks’ Wes Edens and Marc Lasry, Washington Wizards’ Ted Leonsis, Sacramento Kings’ Vivek Ranadive, Boston Celtics’ Wyc Grousbeck and Lakers’ Jeanie Buss have donated strictly to Democrats.”
