    Thumbs up The 2022 NBA schedule will show NO Election Day games; Civic Engagement Night planned

    This is pretty cool.

    I love the fact that the NBA is getting more politically involved. For far too long, the league has sat on the sidelines. The league is a social institution and thus it has a moral and ethical obligation. Its athletes are more than just athletes; they won't just 'shut up and dribble.' They have civic responsibilities.

    SCOOP: The 2022 @NBA schedule will show NO Election Day games.

    Instead, all 30 teams will play the Monday before on a themed “civic engagement night,” to encourage fans, players and staff to vote in this year’s midterm elections.

    This marks a significant departure from previous election years.

    While COVID delayed the start of the 2020 season…

    —8 teams played on Election Day 2018, —12 teams in 2016 —16 teams the night of the 2014 midterms.

    “We don’t usually change the schedule for an external event,” @caduggy to @NBCNews. “But voting and Election Day are obviously unique and incredibly important to our democracy.”

    In 2020, the NBA worked with cities to convert 23 arenas and team facilities in voting centers.

    This wasn't the response I was hoping I'd get from you.

    Can you reconsider?

    The league is a for profit entertainment company, theoretically there to entertain everyone. Why in the world would you want them to be politically active? Are you going to be equally excited if a sports league gets politically active on conservative issues?
