JJ Reddick thinks that US President Donald Trump won’t affect NBA’s stand regarding to players taking a knee during National Anthem.

Trump tweeted an ultimatum to any athletes, regardless of the league, that it would be “game over” for them the moment they kneel down while the National Anthem is playing.

The New Orleans Pelicans veteran responded to the said tweet during the post-game interview, citing that the NBA wouldn’t mind if Trump won’t watch basketball anymore.

First of all, I don’t think anybody in the NBA cares if President Trump watches basketball. I couldn’t care less,” Redick told Yahoo Sports after a 106-104 against Utah Jazz.

“As far as his base, I think regardless of the specificity of tweeting about the NBA, every tweet of his is meant to divide, every tweet is meant to incite, every tweet is meant to embolden his base. So [last week] was no different.”
