The Milwaukee Bucks boycotted their playoff game. The stunning move unfurled on Wednesday evening inside the Orlando bubble, where the Bucks were booked to arrive at 4 p.m. in any case, never stepped on to the court. Rather, their adversary, the Orlando Magic warmed up while Milwaukee stayed in the locker room.
At the point when it turned out to be clear the Bucks weren’t showing up, the Magic players strolled off and the game was delayed. It was the biggest message yet from a NBA team as the league attempts to shuffle their goal of advancing the Black Lives Matter development while broadcasting the playoffs. It’s indistinct if the Bucks will relinquish Wednesday’s game.
Milwaukee lead the series, 3-1. It’s important that the Bucks play in a similar state, Wisconsin, where Jacob Blake was shot in the most recent case of police mercilessness focused on an unarmed Black man. After the Bucks concluded they weren’t playing, the Rockets, Thunder, Lakers and Blazers chose to pass on their Wednesday night Games 5 also.
