'Black Lives Matter' to be painted on NBA courts

LINK

quote:

League organisers have agreed to paint NBA courts with the words "Black Lives Matter" when the basketball season resumes next month in Florida, US media reports said.

NBA stars have been prominent supporters of the anti-racism protests that swept across the United States following the death in May of George Floyd, an unarmed black man, in police custody.

The NBA and the National Basketball Players Association are planning to paint the slogan inside the sidelines of all three arenas at Disney World in Orlando, ESPN reported Monday.

League commissioner Adam Silver said last week that the goal of the NBA restart will be to promote social justice and combat systemic racism.

Man I haven't watched the NBA in probably a decade but this...this is definitely the move to get me and all my non-NBA watching friends to tune in.

Adam Silver should be renamed to Adam Gold because his ideas are so brilliant.

Do you think the NBA is trying to gain back your specific viewership in some way? If you haven’t watched in a decade then there’s nothing they could do to bring you back most likely so you aren’t not even accounted for when making business decisions because you don’t matter to their business

Ahhh, I’m sure this and allowing players to choose what arctivitivist phrases to put in place of their names, will surely increase their market share and values

Maybe someone can throw a bunch or aborted black babies on the court to show their hypocrisy
