NBA: Players Discuss Not Returning Until “Social Justice” Issues Are Resolved

NBPA’s Michele Roberts says players discussing best way to use influence on BLM movement

National Basketball Players Association executive director Michele Roberts said the players she represents spent the weekend discussing how they could best use “our obvious influence — either by playing or not playing — to make sure we enhance and move this movement forward” rather than distracting from it.

After nearly 100 NBA players participated in a call Friday night, in which Brooklyn Nets guard and NBPA vice president Kyrie Irving made a case against resuming the season in Orlando in late July, Roberts said players have spent the weekend considering how the league’s return might affect the Black Lives Matter movement.
