A number of Charlotte Hornets’ players took to social media to voice their opinions on the results of the 2016 United States’ presidential election.
The Charlotte Hornets are a diverse team with a number of players from around the world. Of the numerous players on the roster, only a few voiced their opinions on the 2016 presidential elections on social media. While every player probably had a thought or feeling, most seemed to keep it to themselves, which is their right.
Only Frank Kaminsky and Spencer Hawes tweeted about the election while Greensboro Swarm members, Damien Wilkins and Rasheed Sulaimon, shared their thoughts as well. And for the record, our vote was for Kemba Walker because the #WinWithWalker campaign last season took us by storm. Unfortunately, Kemba won’t be our next president but he can still be the leader of the Charlotte Hornets.

The team’s EVP, Chief Sales & Marketing Officer Charlotte, Pete Guelli, agreed with our sentiment as he too tweeted about Walker as “a candidate we can all agree on.” The Hornets’ campaign for Kemba to win the Most Improved Player last season was one of the best put together stunts from an NBA team in recent history.
Getting to the players, Frank Kaminsky shared a few tweets on election night.
