Unless you’ve been living under a rock over the last week or so, you will be aware of the lewd comments caught on tape during Donald Trump’s appearance on ‘Access Hollywood’ 11 years ago.

Since the footage was unearthed, the Republican presidential candidate has dismissed his words as “locker-room talk.” Who knows locker-room banter better than professional athletes?

Cleveland Cavaliers star superstarLeBron James has dismissed Trump’s comments and several other professional sports personalities have questioned the controversial figure’s experience in locker-rooms.

Brooklyn Nets duo Brook Lopez and Jeremy Lin are the latest to publicly distance themselves from Trump’s brand of locker-room talk, as per Greg Logan of News Day.

“That’s not something I’ve ever seen go on in a locker room,” Lopez said. “It seemed pretty offensive. That’s not the craziest answer in the world, right? It’s common sense.”

When speaking to Billy Bush, Trump described how he uses his fame to force kisses on women and grab their genitalia.

“It’s extremely vulgar,” Lin said. “That’s not something that’s commonly said. I mean, that’s pretty disrespectful to women. It’s definitely not a common thing to walk around a locker room talking like that. I’ve been in a lot of locker rooms.”

The recent comments are an addition to a long list of questionable soundbites from the billionaire and they clearly don’t sit well with the basketball community.
