However, Butler doesn’t even want his name there and goes away empty-handed.
“I decided not,” said Butler on Tuesday. “With that said, I hope that my last name will not continue there either. Just because I love and respect all the messages the league has chosen, but to me I felt like without a message, without a name, it goes back to, as I was, and if I were not who I was today, I am no different from any other colored person and I want this to be my message in the sense that just because I am an NBA player, everyone has the same right no matter what happens and that’s how I feel with my colored people. “
Smith and Kellerman have no problems with the player’s decision, with Stephen A. comparing it to Malcolm X, who chooses to change his last name to X to mean that he is nobody in America. Max says this is just Jimmy Butler, marching to the beat of his own drum, as he has done throughout his career.
