NBA, NBPA announce playoffs to resume Saturday, new initiatives

LeBron James Lakers Clippers NBA players decide to resume playoffs after protests against racial injustice (report)

We protest and they send riot guards.

The NHL shut down for two days, altering NBC's programming schedule, before resuming with the Bruins-Lightning Game 4 Saturday on NBC. It filled its programming with a couple of movies - "The Longest Yard" and "Blended" - but did continue with its 6:30 pregame "Inside The NBA" studio program.

Black Lives Matter is displayed near the NBA logo in an empty basketball arena on August 28, 2020, in Lake Buena Vista, Fla.

The Toronto Raptors and Boston Celtics will play Game 1 of their second-round playoff series on Sunday at 1 p.m. ET. "We need change. We need for love in the world, and try to make it a better place". But we did, and we took it, and the players took it.

The Los Angeles Clippers coach, Doc Rivers delivered a powerful message in regards to the Jacob Blake shooting in Kenosha, Wisconsin.

To make his point, Rivers referenced the protests in Lansing, Michigan last April, when an armed, seemingly all-white militia stormed the state capital to demonstrate against COVID-19 lockdown measures. It was not the only disagreement of the night, he said.

"And I'm glad that we got the chance to get in a room together to talk with one another and not just cross paths and say, "good luck in your game today".

After an initial meeting, we had news that Lakers and Clippers would sit out the rest of the playoffs. "Basketball can wait until we get an answer".

Rivers didn't fear the season was over Wednesday but felt the vote whether to stay or go was close.

According to the Blake family lawyer, the 29-year-old father of three is paralyzed from the waist down, and it will "take a miracle" for him to walk again. Rivers said he was particularly impressed by the opinions of Lou Williams, Kawhi Leonard and Marcus Morris Sr. The training has to change in the police force. We needed a moment to breathe.

"I was (and am) ready and prepared to concede the match to my opponent", Osaka said.

The players' actions spread to other leagues, including the WNA, MLS, and the NHL.

Electing to stay and play was the players' way of leveraging the spotlight and power wielded by the league and ownership, but Beverley acknowledged the next step is to "keep that same attitude" after leaving the bubble.

As part of the agreement, the National Basketball Association and its players will establish a coalition that will focus on access to voting for the November 3 general election, promoting civic engagement, and advocating for meaningful police and criminal justice reform.

Teams returned to practice Friday, though several canceled scheduled media availabilities early in the afternoon. But I thought the action was the right action, especially because of who it was.
