Kyle Korver, the sharpshooter of the Milwaukee Bucks, is very happy to have the opportunity to compete for the NBA championship in Orlando.
But he also realized that the NBA community and the world are fighting for social justice and equal rights.
Korver joined ESPN Analyst Richard Jefferson discussed world current events on Instagram Live Tuesday.
Colfer said: “If my black teammates, friends and brothers feel that the best way to achieve real change is not to participate in the game, I will stand with them.”
Earlier this week, Brooklyn Nets guard and NBPA vice chairman Kyrie Irving suggested that players consider protesting social injustice for the remainder of the season.
“I’m fine. If we think this is the best way to change, then I am more concerned with change than with champions.” Coffer continued.
Commissioner Adam Silver has not provided specific details on how the league can provide players with a platform for change.
Perhaps giving Korver and his teammates a medium to discuss recent events is a good start.
