More than 298,000 people cast ballots at 40 professional arenas and stadiums used as voting precincts in the 2020 election, according to USA Today Sports. No location had more voters and arguably had a bigger impact than State Farm Arena in Atlanta, Georgia, a state with a close presidential count that two upcoming Senate runoff races. Nearly 40,000 of the 315,000 Fulton County residents who voted early did so at the home of the Atlanta Hawks, per USA Today Sports. It was arguably a difference maker as President-elect Joe Biden holds a slim lead of 14,163 votes (0.3 margin) over President Donald Trump as of count totals Friday morning. Both Senate seats will have a runoff in January.

Harrison Wind: More Monte Morris on Jokic: “He don’t get a lot of credit, as he should. Maybe because he ain’t flashy with the dunks and things. But he produces just as much, if not more, than anybody in the NBA. I’m amazed every night. I see it and in practice it’s effortless.”
