MSNBC Covers NBA Finals by Stating ‘Politics Will Hit the Court’

Posted on 02 June 2016

It came as no surprise that when reporting on this year's playoffs to determine which team will be crowned the National Basketball Association champions, MSNBC host Tamron Hall instead focused on two players who are “prominent Democrats” and engage in community events when not on the court.

“Tonight, politics will hit the basketball court with the beginning of the NBA finals between the Golden State Warriors and the Cleveland Cavaliers,” Hall noted at the start of the segment. “Stephen Curry is going up against LeBron James, both of whom are prominent Democrats who’ve supported the Obamas in major social media campaigns.”
