NBA Players Bringing ‘List of Actionable Items’ to League In Order to Resume Play
There is still hope that NBA players and league leaders can come up with a plan to save the season … with players compiling a list of “exploitable items” they want the NBA to do. approves to continue.
A high profile NBA source tells us … the feeling among several players is that they will lose their biggest rig if they quit the season.
Of course, a shutdown will not affect the impact of superstars like James lebron … but we’re told the majority of gamers see real value in being able to use the NBA platform to talk to the masses about social justice issues.
In reality, Draymond Green just posted about it – saying, “The idea that athletes should just stop working out but no one else in the world should stop confuses me.”
“Why stop doing what gives you the greatest platform to speak for those like me / a lot of us?”
“To do this is to give up the platform to speak on their behalf, because without us using our platforms, which is enabled by the influence of sport, it prevents us from echoing what those say. which are in the back. “
So the hope is that both sides can come to a compromise – with the players reuniting after a tense Wednesday night meeting to put together a list of demands for the league.
Obviously, the NBA wants to keep going – there is so much money at stake. And, from what we understand, the leaders and owners of the league are meeting on Thursday morning to find a way to strike a deal with the players.
As we previously reported, the Milwaukee Bucks were the first team to boycott on Wednesday when they refused to speak for Game 5 of their playoff series with the Orlando Magic.
Other teams followed suit … until the league officially announced that all games would be postponed to a later date.
We’re told the league had already planned for possible COVID-related postponements … so they’re not very worried about coming back on time.
But, word is … the game almost certainly won’t resume on Thursday – everyone still needs some time.
Our sincere thanks to
