Giannis and the guys are not with the sh***. Can’t play for a City/State that doesn’t see those men as people.

Proud of them. SHAKE THE TABLE.

Wow! Good for them for taking a stand!

It will be interesting to see if this is just the first domino for the other games happening later tonight and any other ones going forward.

It literally hits close to home for these Milwaukee players, so it's clear that their hearts are heavy. Playing basketball is not something they, or America, should be worried about right now.

Imagine boycotting the most work league in the world lmao. Even worse, protesting because somebody got shot because he wouldn't listen to the police and potentially went for a firearm inside his vehicle. Interesting times we live in, nobody wants to take accountability for their actions. Listen to the police, don't do drugs, don't do harm. Really isn't complicated.

Not woke enough to punish players for racial slurs against a European player apparently.

I’m confused. What could change that quickly? And how do you boycott without a list of demands? I guess a lot of them don’t know how a protest works. The whole point is getting a list of your demands met. You hit them where it hurts and that’s in their pocketbooks. You think when the Montgomery bus boycott happened, they boarded the bus the next day? No!!!!! They boycotted and those who needed a ride somewhere would carpool with someone who had a car. And it hurt the public transportation industry in Montgomery for awhile because they were losing money.

I'm not even sure who they are protesting or boycotting. It's all very strange and nonsensical.

They just wanted a few days off. That's all.
