NBA Playoffs to Resume on Saturday After Players Take Significant Stand
After 24 hours of uncertainty, the NBA playoffs will go on.
In what was an incredible display of unity, players opted to boycott playoff games in order to make a powerful statement that was heard all around the world.
In light of the Jacob Blake shooting in Wisconsin, players have had enough and they want the league to do more.
“It’s just sickening,” Milwaukee Bucks point guard George Hill said when asked about the shooting of Blake. “It’s heartless. It’s a f—ed-up situation. Like I said, you’re supposed to look at the police to protect and serve. Now, it’s looked at harass or shoot. To almost take a guy’s life. Thank God he’s still alive.
The NBA's players have decided to resume the playoffs, source tells ESPN.
