We reported on Wednesday that the Orlando Magic donated $50,000 to the super PAC for Ron DeSantis back in June and that apparently has upset the apple car among some in the NBA.
Well yesterday the NBA Players Association derided the donation by the team, saying “A political contribution from the Orlando Magic is alarming given recent comments and policies of its beneficiary.”

They don’t say which ‘comments’ or ‘policies’ they don’t like, so we can assume they hate them all.
DeSantis hit back this morning, writing “It appears the NBA took a break from protesting our anthem and bending the knee to Communist China to chirp about my policies.”
