A video of Donald Trump ten years ago was recently revealed, where he bragged about sexually assaulting women and stated other disgusting things of that nature.
The amount of support for Trump took a significant hit of course, and it doesn't seem like he's helped his cause within NBA circles either.

Trump issued a half-hearted apology upon the video's release, which many took exception to.
According to Trump, the horrible words he spoke was simply "locker room" talk. Although, many have wondered if the Republican Presidential Candidate has ever actually been in an athletic locker room.

All this heavy breathing seems more locker room-esque than anything #debate— Blake Griffin (@blakegriffin32) October 10, 2016
Get your sunglasses, it's getting awfully shady now.
PSA: sexual advances without consent is NOT locker room talk.— Kendall Marshall (@KButter5) October 10, 2016
Needless to say, a ton of NBA players won't be voting for Donald Trump this November.
The NBA players make a fair point. While it's assumed to some extent that athletes are vulgar, the kind of language Mr. Trump used in this leaked audio would not be acceptable in a locker room, let alone anyone running for President of the United States.
