NBA: Cleveland Cavaliers players decline to lodge at Trump Hotel amid New York visit

 The Cleveland Cavaliers play the New York Knicks in a NBA game this week and the Cavs' players have declined to lodge at the Trump Soho despite the fact that rooms had been reserved ahead of time. The president-elect does not possess the inn but rather it bears his name as a part of a permitting bargain. The Cleveland Cavaliers are the most recent in a line of NBA teams to avoid anything Trump.
Days after Trump's win, three NBA groups concluded that they would blacklist Trump-marked lodgings, as indicated by ESPN. The Milwaukee Bucks, Memphis Grizzlies, and Dallas Mavericks chose to no longer remain at Trump lodgings in New York and Chicago.

James, the most conspicuous Cavalier and one of the league's top whizzes, supported Hillary Clinton during the US Presidential election and even showed up with her at a rally in the place where he grew up of Ohio which Trump in the long run won. His colleague, Iman Shumpert says he won't show up at the White House for the customary NBA team visit should the Cavaliers win the NBA title. Shumpert told Complex Magazine that he was killed by Trump's 'bigot, sexist bullshit.'
