NBA will play the National Anthem before all restart games.
It seems completely unnecessary given the bubble concept, but I think we all know why they are going to.

They’ve got to give the players an opportunity to make this all about them for their social media following.

So playing the anthem to a virtually empty arena simply to kneel during said anthem.

Another chance to alienate any new fans they may have potentially gotten. Look. If they want to destroy themselves, just let them. It's all political theater at this point.

This is pretty pathetic. Using the national anthem as a prop for their movement.

It just goes to show this isn’t a movement for anything, it is a movement against our traditional way of life. Meant to divide.

If all these guys just take a knee in a moment of silence, doesn’t have the same pop. Got to trigger people to get the message across.

Did the NBA change the rule that players have to stand for the anthem?

I would be willing to bet everyone complaining about the NBA playing the National Anthem before games would also complain about it being unAmerican if they decided not to play it

They should play the Chinese anthem instead. Bitches would stand for that.

It's one last chance to offend the 4 or 5 grandpas that may have tuned in because they missed sports.

I won’t cry if the resumes season gets cancelled.

It may be worth it just to watch LeBron’s tears as his window closes.

They are most likely doing it because players want to kneel.

I don't think so.

When the Kaep stuff was a big deal in 2016 or whenever it was, I think the general tone of the MSB was to wonder why it's even played at all, and that it would be better to just not play it. Not saying there weren't quite a few who opposed, but I do think that generally speaking that is what the MSB agreed on.

NBA players won't be kneeling unless they want to pay fines.
