76ers Mike Scott (Mike Scott) and others say that the news jersey has misunderstood the NBA
Philadelphia 76ers striker Mike Scott I believe the NBA’s intentions are good, but the new news jerseys are straightforward.
In a conference call with reporters on Monday, Scott said they should get more input from the players.
“They gave us some names and phrases to post on the back of the jersey. It was terrible. It was just a bad lady, a wrong choice. They did not give players the opportunity to comment. They just listed us for List of choices. “That’s too bad, that’s terrible. Said Scott. “I’m just doing it, not saying or posting or putting something on the back of the jersey.” I don’t think it will stop anything, do you know? “
These spare jerseys will be available to players wearing the first four games.
Marc J. Spears and The Undefeated reported that the NBA and the National Association of Basketball Players agreed to the following list of messages: say their names; vote; I can’t breathe; justice; Peace; equality; freedom; enough; the power of the people; justice now; say her name; SíSe Puede (yes, we can); liberate; see us; listen to us; respect us; love us; listen; Listen to us say stand up; allies; anti-racism; I am a man saying aloud how much; group economics; education reform; mentor.

Scott’s teammate Josh Richardson He said he thinks the NBA is trying to do the right thing, but this is not a simple solution.
“I think it’s hard to limit people’s feelings and how people say it, only list 15 to 20 sentences, do you know?”
Boston Celtics Jaylen Brown The reason for the player’s participation in the restart is a personal reason, and the “one size fits all” message delivery does not reduce it.
“What do I want to see there? Maybe it’s “break the cycle” and put it on the back of the jersey. Everyone is pursuing the “result”. Maybe it’s “design inequality.” Such things may be more than what we provide Some things have a deeper impact. I think this is a bit restrictive.”
In addition to painting “Black Lives Matter” on the sidelines of Orlando, this jersey is part of the league’s efforts to maintain awareness and focus on social justice and systematic racism.
