NBA Will Host ‘Election-Based Themed’ Fan Nights Ahead Of Election Day Instead Of Playing games

The NBA just announced that it will not be hosting any games on Election Day.

The league plans to keep all 30 teams off the court on Election Day in an attempt to increase voter turnout. And the current 2022 NBA schedule shows zero games on November 8th.

“We don’t usually change the schedule for an external event,” James Cadogan, the executive director of the National Basketball Social Justice Coalition said. “But voting and Election Day are obviously unique and incredibly important to our democracy.”

As Clay Travis of Outkick reported, every NBA team will “participate in election themed games the right before” Election Day.

“I hope that all of the woke NBA players will stay up late on election night to watch as the red tide rushes across the country. This is yet another example of sports embracing woke idiocy,” Travis would later say.

Reporter Mark Harris of Outkick shared the following:

The NBA, which let us all remember is not at all political, will keep all 30 teams off the court on Election Day in an attempt to increase voter turnout…

… The NBA keeping teams at home for this year’s midterms isn’t their only political strategy. All 30 teams will take the floor the Monday before Election Day with each home team hosting “election-based themed” fan nights.

As many on the Right have pointed out, the NBA continues to wedge itself as a political institution despite telling its fan base that it is not influenced by external events. They can’t have it both ways.

Travis argues that the league is putting woke politics above the game at every opportunity. Which is ultimately alienating the NBA’s fanbase.

This Election Day hiatus, with “election-based themed” fan nights leading up to November 8th, is “just another example of how sports aren’t willing to be just sports,” Outkick stated.

“Instead, they have to be ‘left-wing woke sports and politics,’” it added.

It’s worth noting that the only other time the NBA did not host games on Election Day was in 2020 when the league shut down due to COVID-19. 

Not to mention that many voting polls close by 7PM, which is the typical start time for most NBA games. 

Of course, those points don’t matter, as this is all nothing more than virtue signaling from the woke NBA in hopes of scoring more Democratic votes in the 2022 midterm elections.
