Outspoken Detroit Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy joined a number of other non-political voices Wednesday in condemning the election of Donald Trump as U.S. president, stating that he was "ashamed" of the outcome.A visibly shaken Van Gundy, however went further, and felt Trump's rhetoric about women, ethnic minorities and immigrants during the campaign would only damage the country.Van Gundy, whose Pistons team is mostly African-American, added he felt the U.S. could no longer claim to be a moral leader and had disqualified itself from lecturing other countries on human rights.Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr was also dismayed at the election result, though he spoke more diplomatically.Golden State forward David West, however, felt Trump's election was the manifestation of still simmering racial, ethnic and class tensions in the country.
