The NBA and the NBPA today announced that in light of the Milwaukee Bucks’ decision to not take the floor today for Game 5 against the Orlando Magic, today’s three games – MIL-ORL, HOU-OKC and LAL-POR have been postponed. Game 5 of each series will be rescheduled.
It's official: the Milwaukee Bucks are boycotting Game 5. They are putting the focus exactly where it should be. The police shot Jacob Blake in the back, justice is a pipe dream, and this is not a time for games.
On the same day 4 years ago that @Kaepernick7 protested peacefully during the anthem for social justice, the Milwaukee Bucks boycott an NBA playoff game in protest of the unjust treatment against Black men and women. I’m speechless. We are truly seeing the fruits of his labor.
With the Bucks boycotting Game 5, read Sterling Brown's story about his experience with the Milwaukee police: "The city of Milwaukee wanted to give me $400,000 to be quiet after cops kneeled on my neck, stood on my ankle, and tased me in a parking lot." https://t.co/O3KwUy6m3Y
