Despite heavy backing from celebrities and athletes – including LeBron James, Steph Curry, Carmelo Anthony, Magic Johnson, JR Smith & Mavs owner Mark Cuban – Hilary Clinton lost the 2016 Presidential election to Donald Trump.

So does this mean a bunch of people are going to move out of the country? Like Samuel L Jackson, who told Jimmy Kimmel, “If that motherfucker becomes President, I’m moving my black ass to South Africa.” Hell no it does not! People are all talk and I bet many of the most vocal critics of Trump on social media and fans/followers of the celebs and athletes above didn’t even vote (Note: Clinton beat Trump in the popular vote but lost in the Electoral College). But if you are interested in leaving this great country instead of trying to make it a better one, according to Joel Embiid on Twitter, “We’re all from Africa and will welcome you back.”

Here’s what a few other NBA players had to say about Trump becoming our 45th president of the United States.
