The NBA knew everyone wouldn't support putting Black Lives Matter on its courts & warmup T-shirts during the season reboot in Orlando. This @TheAthleticNBA story explains why the league did it anyway: Equality isn’t up for debate https://t.co/05biB1tLfJ

Back in January, I wrote how the Denver Nuggets came up from the middle but have a collective identity that’s from the mud. I also said the emergence of Michael Porter Jr. could change the trajectory of a franchise contending without high lottery picks https://t.co/XbpEu2s8ex

"You can allow players to scribble slogans on uniforms and paint messages on fields and courts. The reality is that when power gives players permission to protest, it’s no longer a protest. It’s a pantomime." - @WCRhoden https://t.co/oH0Vp7oL5R

NBA deputy commissioner Mark Tatum on the message on courts & T-shirts in Florida: "We didn’t view Black Lives Matter as a political matter. This is a human rights issue. Black Lives Matter has come to represent a broader movement around racial inequality" https://t.co/05biB1tLfJ

The NBA & NBPA officially announced a $300 million initiative to support social justice issues. Mark Tatum told @TheAthleticNBA, "Those are the things that I think are going to move the needle in addition to maintaining the intention of the movement, which is Black Lives Matter." https://t.co/gbWzdyQg4y

Find out why you will see #BlackLivesMatter - the rallying cry for what many consider the modern civil rights movement - during every NBA game & how two movements, rooted in the same pain, have finally converged on the hardwood courts in Orlando https://t.co/05biB1tLfJ

Strong read @MrMichaelLee 👊🏽 When you’re Black, it’s not a movement. It’s a lifestyle,” LeBron James said. “This is a walk of life. I don’t like the word ‘movement’ because unfortunately in America and in society there ain’t been no damn movement for us.” https://t.co/vN3ssIA6uI

It started as idea among friends in Venice Beach — a portable hooping experience. Then, they actually went out and did it. It morphed into the Kobe Bus, and then the Black Lives Matter Bus. Meet @thehoopbus (New for @TheAthleticLA): https://t.co/JlxtkqQxTn

Now that the NBA has added last names to these jerseys with social justice messages, I kind of wish Shai Gilgeous-Alexander had chosen 'Black Lives Matter' instead of 'Equality' just to see how many letters Nike could fit on the back.
