As the NBA season marks its return for next month, the instances of racial injustice still loom heavy in the hearts and minds of the players.
The league is considering a move to allow players to make political statements in support of social justice matters on the back of their jerseys for the rebooted season.
ESPN reports that National Basketball Players Association president and Oklahoma City Thunder star Chris Paul tells The Undefeated that talks to allow players to place statements such as “I Can’t Breathe” and similar messaging on the back of their jerseys have been underway.
Paul said in the chat with The Undefeated that players aren’t beholden to the statements on their jerseys, but some non-Black players say that want to show solidarity and add statements as well.
