The NBA announced all the plans they have to make sure everybody in the bubble is comfortable. They will focus on social justice matters, as well, as they recently announced ‘Black Lives Matter’ will be painted on every court during the two months the teams will be in Orlando to define the 2019/20 NBA champion.
Of course, this didn’t sit well with plenty of people, who think this is not necessary or even ‘fair.’
One Utah Jazz showed his disagreement with the decision and he immediately received backlash from two of the biggest players on the team, Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell.
“If you paint ‘BLM’ on the Court, you have LOST this Utah Jazz fan FOR LIFE,” he tweeted at various Jazz player and team accounts. “Never again. Won’t even watch on TV. Gone like Yesterday,” Twitter user ‘ThorOdinson543’ wrote.
Gobert and Mitchell let this person know that he wasn’t needed as a fan of the team and that he could walk away without any problem.
If you don’t think that Black Lives Matter then maybe you shouldn’t watch us in the first place… https://t.co/ZnsA6afuKI

He deleted the tweet after the two stars went after him. Good thing the two players stand up for what they believe is right, even if that means going against their own fans and their wrong ideas.
