It's official now, and Joe Biden will become the 46th president of the United States of America. After four years of showing their unhappiness with the former president, Donald Trump, the NBA family spoke on social media after finding out the news.
America, I’m honored that you have chosen me to lead our great country.— Joe Biden (@JoeBiden) November 7, 2020
The work ahead of us will be hard, but I promise you this: I will be a President for all Americans — whether you voted for me or not.
I will keep the faith that you have placed in me. pic.twitter.com/moA9qhmjn8

Even if we get a Democrat in the office. Keep that same energy. it’s the same fight. Same laws that restrict us. Same old generation that’s thinks the way they do. Real talk. Keep goin— kuz (@kylekuzma) August 26, 2020

During the NBA restart in Orlando following Breonna Taylor's and Ahmaud Arbery's tragic deaths to police brutality, the ballers from the association had one common goal and was not the Larry O'Brien Trophy.
The league made sure to use their platform to motivate people to go out and vote. Some players even decided to put the word 'Vote' in the back of their jerseys, as the association allowed them to put social justice messages along with their names.
Players were also happy to know Kamala Harris will be the first woman, first South Asian American and first Black person to be elected as Vice President of the United States of America.
I am extremely excited to have @JoeBiden as president but growing up with my mother and sister two black women! For them to have someone like @KamalaHarris leading the charge man is truly incredible not just for black people but for BLACK WOMEN! ✊🏾💯— Donovan Mitchell (@spidadmitchell) November 7, 2020

This also means the NBA Champions will go to the White House in Washington, DC after every season. Let's remember teams refused to attend the White House during Trump's tenure in office.
