Report: NBA To Paint ‘Black Lives Matter’ On Courts

The NBA is reportedly planning to paint ‘Black Lives Matter’ on their Disney courts, according to ESPN. The WNBA is also weighing the decision, the report noted.

Conservative talk radio host Mark Levin responded on Twitter saying, “So, a violent Marxist-anarchist, anti-Semitic, hate-America group will have its name painted on sides of the NBA basketball courts. And the multi-millionaire players and billionaire owners – hypocrites and frauds – expect the rest of us to pay for this?”

He added, “I certainly hope we still have the gumption to tell these pathetic, phony revolutionaries, who milk this country for everything it’s worth while condemning it, go to hell and we, the people, stop subsidizing their extravagant lifestyles.

The basketball players’ union is also vying for players to be able to wear jerseys with messages of racial justice,  ESPN reports.

The report comes as the basketball league moves towards restarting the sports season after a months-long halt with the COVID-19 pandemic. Many teams have announced plans to kick off the season in late July.
