America is approaching one of the biggest moments in their recent history with the 2016 Presidential Election less than a month away.

On November 8, all of the talking will be over and citizens will head to the ballots to choose between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. Sport plays a huge part in the outcome with superstar players able to use their platform to peak the interest of those that would usually stay away.

Working with NBPA, superstars LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony and Chris Paul have implored US citizens not to 'stay on the sidelines' and ensure they make their voices heard on decision day.


There has never been such a heated contest between two candidates; the third and final debate descended to the brink of madness as Trump and Clinton went at each other.

The Republican candidate has divided the nation with his controversial views on numerous topics, and, if polls are to be believed - although Brexit Britain proves they're not always correct - Clinton is likely to win in a landslide.

James, who has a huge voice in Ohio - a swing state - has already put his support behind the Democratic candidate - wife of former President Bill Clinton - and it could have a huge say on the outcome of the vote in Ohio.
