The NBA has announced that Wednesday's games — Game 5s between the Bucks and Magic, Thunder and Rockets, and Lakers and Blazers, have all been postponed.
In a statement, the NBA said all of Wednesday's games will be rescheduled. It's being reported that the league's players will meet tonight to discuss next steps, but it's clear that they're rightfully fed up with the lack of action surrounding continued racial injustice and inequality in America. Kudos to the players for taking a stand and forcing the NBA to respond to their collective action. The NBA holds a powerful position, and the players have chosen to use their powerful voice to try and enact meaningful change on the larger world. It's a historic day in sports.
