JJ Redick claimed nobody in the league cares if US President Donald Trump is a fan of the NBA or not.

Trump took to Twitter and said he would stop watching the NBA if players kneel during the national anthem.

“First of all, I don’t think anybody in the NBA cares if President Trump watches basketball. I couldn’t care less. 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,” Redick told Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports.
