18:20 PT – LeBron James and all of his Lakers friends took part in a road show during the anthem before landing at the LA Clippers.
The Clippers also knelt down along with all the coaches, staff and referees who worked on the game.
16:44 PT – Member of the NBA commission Adam Silver appeals to the decision of both teams to kneel before the game saying they will not be penalized for the gesture.
“I respect the united peaceful act of protest of our teams for social justice, and in such exceptional circumstances I will not implement our long-standing rule requiring us to stand playing our anthem.”
Powerful moment since NBA recovery – where every player plays in the New Orleans Pelicans and Utah Jazz during the anthem he knelt in solidarity.
It was a pretty positive Thursday night during the first official NBA game update game that ended in a bubble setting at Walt Disney World in Orlando.
It seems that every coach and judge in the building also killed the roads like stars Rudy Gobertas, Lonzo ball, Zion Williamson and Donovan Mitchell.
All the players wore Black Lives Matter shirts – and stood behind the BLM Art Center.
The anthem was performed by a musician Jonas Batiste – instrumental transmission with heavy guitar and piano elements.
During the anthem, the players were holding hands – some players raised their fists.
After the anthem Shaquille’as O’Nealis praised all those involved – saying that the relaxation of the road was “beautifully done in unison – nice to see”.
He added: “We have to keep fighting, keep moving … now we have to go to the polls.”
Charles Barkley also weighed in … saying, “If people don’t kneel, they’re not a bad person. I want to explain that.”
Barkley added that if a man chooses not to kneel, he should not be deceived.
Of course, the roads began to move Colin Kaepernick who says the purpose of the demonstration is to draw attention to police brutality and social injustice.
The NBA has allowed players to change their names on the end of the jerseys with social justice messages.
The T-shirt of Zion says, “Peace.” Lonzo Ball’s says, “Equality.” Brandon Ingramsays “freedom”. Mike’as Conleyit says, “I am a man.”
