The Whole Pelicans And Jazz Took A Knee During The Anthem In The NBA Restart

NBA Players Kneeling

The NBA is back. After a long hiatus the NBA has returned to the court tonight inside a bubble in Orlando, Florida. During the NBA’s hiatus many players involved were outspoken on racial injustice around the country. So the NBA decided to put “Black Lives Matter” on the court and they allowed the players to wear jerseys with messages of social injustice.

As the game was beginning the National Anthem was being played and both team’s players and coaches and staff took a knee during the National Anthem to protest police brutality. They were joined by referees in taking a knee as well.

This begs the question I have been asking over and over again since the time of Colin Kaepernick taking a knee. Do we really need the national anthem before sporting events? Or is this something we need to eliminate? I am not sure what the right answer is but I feel like we have a country divided almost near a 50/50 split on this issue.
