Marcus Smart Says Some NBA Players Are Thinking of Boycotting Playoffs and Not Playing

Boston Celtics guard Marcus Smart revealed that NBA players are thinking of boycotting and not playing the rest of the season.

Smart’s comments come after the brutal police shooting of Jacob Blake over the weekend.

Smart isn’t the first NBA player to speak out following yet another act of police brutality.

Utah Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell posted an angry message on Twitter after seeing the shooting of Blake.

In addition, Milwaukee Bucks guard George Hill called for change and lamented his decision to go to the NBA’s Orlando, Fla. bubble.

Ever since the death of George Floyd, another unarmed Black man wrongly killed by police officers, NBA players have been taking a stand against police brutality.

It will be interesting to see if the idea of a boycott catches on during the playoffs.
