LeBron James has shared a strong message following the Milwaukee Bucks announcement that they won't play today against the Orlando Magic. The Bucks were set to play at 4 PM ET. but they decided not to show up and boycott Game 5 of their series.
The Oklahoma City Thunder and the Houston Rockets won't play today, either, just like the Lakers and Trail Blazers.
They were expected to join the protests, especially after Bron's message. He took to Twitter to show his discontent with the things happening in America right now, more so after the shooting of Jacob Blake, a black man shot seven times by the police in Kenosha, Wisconsin.
"FUCK THIS MAN!!!! WE DEMAND CHANGE. SICK OF IT," LeBron wrote on Twitter, demanding action to all the racial injustices happening across the country right now.
The Los Angeles Lakers are scheduled to face the Portland Trail Blazers in Game 5 later today, but that possibility seems more and more unlikely as the minutes go by. The league hasn't made any announcement yet but it's clear that they need to address this situation.
The Boston Celtics and Toronto Raptors were in talks to boycott tomorrow's game before the Bucks took action and refused to play today.
