Magic Johnson will be down the road of the marketing campaign this weekend to endorse Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden.
The five-time NBA champion travels to Detroit and Lansing, Michigan twice to support Biden in the presidential election the following month.
Johnson has loudly endorsed Biden and repeatedly used his Twitter account to get his followers to vote on November 3rd. Johnson previously criticized President Donald Trump, pointing out that the president "crossed his stage" when Trump withdrew an invitation to the Golden State Warriors to the White House after triumphing in the 2017 NBA final.
The president said he made the choice after Warriors star Stephen Curry was reluctant to simply accept the invitation after saying he didn't want to enjoy the title by visiting the White Home and advised Trump not to give management to have.
"I don't know why he feels the need to target certain people relatively than others," Curry said on September 22, 2017.
"I was wondering why, in my opinion, it is simply a kind of underground, a pacemaker of a rustic to go this way." It's not what leaders do. "
Curry's stance on Trump hasn't changed in the last three years, and in August three-time NBA champion Biden confirmed it in a video along with his spouse Ayesha and daughters Ryan and Riley.
LeBron James, arguably Trump's most famous critic on the planet, has also actively campaigned for Biden.
"I feel that what has been identified does not need to be disclosed," he said in August.
"We're the place at one time where we want to change. To ensure that change, it's all about management. And management starts at its peak."

Earlier this month, Curry also appeared in a video with the Democratic candidate and Oklahoma Metropolis Thunder star and NBA Gamers Affiliation President Chris Paul, who had over 90 percent of NBA players registered to vote in the last month November 3rd to participate.
Paul and Biden visited the Carole Hoefner Heart in Charlotte, North Carolina, where they spoke to high school staff, and inspired them to get involved in politics and vote as soon as possible to get active.
From there, they reaffirmed the importance of the vote on FaceTimed Curry – a Charlotte native who helped renovate the past 12-month Carole Hoefner Heart.
Curry's head coach Steve Kerr has been instrumental to Trump for the past 4 years. For the last month, he supported the Biden marketing campaign by helping a digital phone financial institution on Nationwide Voter Registration Day in Tucson, Arizona.
Kerr isn't the only NBA head coach in Biden's camp. Philadelphia 76ers' newly appointed coach Doc Rivers said he was honored that the Democratic nominee quoted him during his October 6 speech in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania.
After photographing Jacob Blake in Kenosha, Wisconsin, in August, Rivers had made a passionate plea for police reform, which Biden quoted earlier this month.
"I am honored that Vice President Biden chose my expressions to require social change, for example," the former Los Angeles Clippers head coach informed the Philadelphia Inquirer.
"These are human rights issues that we are preventing. Every American should need social justice for everyone, regardless of race, gender, or political beliefs."
San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich and TNT's NBA analyst, as well as former NBA coach Stan Van Gundy, have each been vehemently criticizing Trump.
In September, former head coach of Inexperienced Bay Packers and Seattle Seahawks, Mike Holmgren, threw his weight behind Biden-Harris's marketing campaign, stating that the November 3rd election was completely different from the one he's seen in his life.
"I didn't finish this any earlier than – I spoke to someone before a marketing campaign […]. This choice is completely different," explained the successful coach of Tremendous Bowl XXXI. “It is actually completely different from any other choice in my life.
While Trump faces many opponents of athletic activity on the planet, he can count on notable supporters himself. A number of NFL homeowners have been in the President's camp for a long time and are being removed on their own.
Two-time professional bowler Herschel Walker has repeatedly endorsed Trump and renewed his support at the Republican Nationwide Conference in August. There he defended the president's stance against players kneeling in the course of the national anthem.
"Just because someone loves and respects the flag, our national anthem and our nation, doesn't mean they don't care about social justice," he said.
“I deal with all of these issues, and so does Donald Trump. He shows how much he cares about social justice and the black group through his actions. And his actions communicate louder than any sticker or slogan on a jersey. "
Walker wasn't the only former NFL contestant to appear at the Republican conference. He was accompanied by Jack Brewer, who accused the media of falsely portraying Trump as a racist.
"I know what racism looks like, I've seen it firsthand," he said. “America, it bears no resemblance to President Trump. I'm fed up with the best way he's portrayed in the media that refuses to acknowledge what he's really done for the black group. It's complicated for our harmless youth. "
Former New York Yankees and Mets bully Darryl Strawberry was also among the many attendees at the August conference. Strawberry, who praised Trump as "very kind and caring to individuals" in a 2017 interview with Sports Activities Illustrated, is one of several former MLB players who stand behind Trump.
Meanwhile, for the past 12 months, former Boston Crimson Sox pitcher Curt Schilling maintained his conservative political beliefs and the fact that he is a Trump supporter had cost him a spot in the MLB Corridor of Fame.
For the past 12 months, New York Yankees' lovely Mariano Rivera has given the President added support, claiming he is doing "his best for America of America" while Washington Nationals catcher Kurt Suzuki once again wore a Make America Nice as the staff Visited the White House to have fun with their 2019 World Collection Triumph.
The two-time world champion of the collection, Aubrey Huff, was also an outspoken Trump fan. Last November, he posted a picture of him on Twitter holding a picture gate with holes in it, suggesting he was teaching his boys how to use a gun in the "unlikely opportunity" Bernie Sanders defeated Trump in the presidential election.
US President Donald Trump and former pitcher Mariano Rivera from the New York Yankees Corridor of Fame will discuss in Washington's South Garden on July 23. DC President Trump and Rivera caught up with young baseball players for some fun on the opening day of Main League Baseball.
