The NBA is facing an unprecedented situation. In response to police brutality and racial injustice, NBA players made a united decision not to play their scheduled playoffs matches today.

The boycotts have already become a national talking point and, on Inside the NBA, the TNT crew (Shaq, Kenny, Ernie Johnson, and Charles Barkley) was supposed to discuss and react to the situation currently playing out across the league.

Instead, Kenny Smith took it a step further by walking off the set to express his support for the players and their decision to boycott.

Kenny won't be the only one joining the players. All around the country, you can expect people of all different backgrounds and venues to take part in drawing attention and taking action to promote change.

America is tired of black folks being killed in the country and with all the racial tension happening right now, it seems they don't anything to distract from finding a solution to the problem.
