Black Lives Matter: NBA Considers Painting Courts When Season Resumes


( ENSPIRE Trending News ) NBA is Looking for New Ways to Support Black Lives Matter

The NBA is anticipating painting “Black Lives Matter” on courts when the season restarts in late July, ESPN announced Monday. The league and the players’ association, the National Basketball Players Association (NBPA), apparently agreed to feature the development at the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando.

The demise of George Floyd has pushed Black Lives Matter to the cutting edge, arousing demonstrations that incorporated some current players. As NBA administration and its players were in conversations to return to playing, a few stars raised the chance of not playing to hold the emphasis on social equity issues. Presently, as per the report, the NBA will utilize the hardwood to keep the focus on the development.

“Black Lives Matter” would be painted on the court inside both sidelines in all three arenas, ESPN reported.  The WNBA is also in discussions to do the same when they begin their season.

Some WNBA players are also considering wearing warm-up shirts with “Say Her Name” to bring attention to female victims of police brutality, including Breonna Taylor. She was killed in her home in Louisville, Kentucky by officers conducting a drug investigation in March while she was sleeping.
