  1. Will they stop games on Christmas for the players to be with their families on Jesus birthday? Or is that not woke enough holiday?

  2. Next I expect them to offer $100 to anyone who goes out and votes democrat. Get woke.

  3. I wont rest until 90% of the population is lbgt. Get woke!

  4. I vote for more abortions and more homosexuality. Get woke!

  5. Nba only wants your vote if your woke! If you arent woke stay home. Wokeness is on the ballet and we need much more of it. Every movie, every book, every thing we touch needs more new age wokeness.

  9. They will do anything to get Democrats to the polls. If you have to try this hard, that's an indictment of your supporters.

  10. How is this going to make any difference?? NBA fans don't vote.

  11. If they thought the majority of their fans were republican, they wouldn't do this

    Adam silver n poppovich are classic limousine libs, all the increase in crime and violence and the inflation doesn't effect them

  12. That's awesome! Much respect for this decision. 😊

  13. the issues I have with this is … wards … so in simply terms … not everyone going to these arena will be voting there, you have to vote in your area … because if I go to an arena in NYC they may not have my right ballot and you are voting in the wrong district. so it is easy to mess up … so this isn't a good idea because it will cause confusing for people who think it is hip and cool to vote in a NBA arena but then get turned away because your district/wards are wrong …

  14. This Civil War will cause Joe Biden to declare Martial Law and shut down the internet, cell phones, power, and water. No more worries about social media, food, and or cars and trucks because there will be no deliveries until the war ends! If this is what Q-Anal wants, this is what they are going to get…NOTHING! These 'Red State NAZI/KKK Braggarts' need to consider this before whacking any FBI Agents, Jews, Doctors, Teachers, Nurses or Democrats!

  15. Alles sehr schön. Aber zuerst zusammen die Nummern 10 und 1. Eine empru.ONLINE Brünette und eine anderel Blondine. Es wäre unfair, wenn ich 4 wählen würde

  16. I don't think black people are going to make the same mistake twice. And vote democrat..

  17. But they Play Christmas & Thanksgiving. Are ya that Dumb???

  18. When you gotta choose between voting and watching sports that says a lot about sports fans. It's not a compliment. Although I thoroughly believe everyone should have the right to vote, I feel that there are some who shouldn't be voting.

  19. So what's Toronto going to do on election day?

  20. Here's an idea make the federal election day government paid holidays for everybody!

  21. Thank God the overpaid sports stars will get a day off so that I can cast my ballot. I feel so much better now.

  22. ❤Only for fans over 18 year⤵️ Alles sehr schön. Aber zuerst zusammen die Nummern 10 und 1. Eine empr.ONLINE Brünette und eine andere Blondine. Es wäre unfair, wenny ich 4 wählen würde

  23. WNBA will schedule their games on voting day to encourage voting 😂

  24. Nobody watches Basketball anymore anyways…
