Many NBA players, supportive to Hillary Clinton, have spoken. Obviously they’re not happy. Shortly after Trump’s election was confirmed, they have started reacting with outrage on social networks.
Important players as Dwyane Wade, Jamal Crawford or DeMarcus Cousins tweeted about their negative feelings and concerns.

Just a few expressed joy after Trump’s victory. Kris Humphries, from Hawks, encourages the new president to make America great again. Mavs owner, Mark Cuban, asks to at least give Trump a chance.
Make America great again!

We all need to give President-Elect Trump a chance. Support the good. Lobby against what we disagree on. No one is bigger than us all

Those two are clearly exceptions. NBA support to Clinton is beyond all doubt, after receiving donations for over $1.5M coming from NBA circles, including Magic Johnson’s $500K donation to her campaign.
