Former NBA playerRoyce Whitesays his friendDraymond Green it is simply wrong to say that NBA players should continue the playoffs … explaining why the right move is for everyone to get out of the bubble as soon as possible !!
White explained his case during an episode of TMZ sports round table with NFL player Brandon Marshalland WNBA star Angel McCoughtry.
The video is fantastic … the group starts a lively conversation about how pro athletes should move forward after the demonstrations of the players in the NBA, WNBA, MLB, NFL and more.
In other words … what is the next step?
Royce White – a former first-round NBA draft pick – says he thinks the NBA should get out of the bubble and go back to their communities and hang out with people.
It’s exactly the opposite of what Draymond Green said earlier this week when he encouraged players to stay and use the NBA platform to effectively send their social justice messages to the masses.
“He’s wrong, he’s out of the way,” White said of Draymond … “It’s no longer about awareness campaigns. Report front line. If you can’t report front line, send help.”
White also had tips for LeBron James – “Go to Akron, Ohio. March with the people. Stay there until something really changes, and if they choose to be completely violent, let your body lie on the street when it’s over.”
As for McCoughtry… evaluated everything from the WNBA action plan, to the split between Co-owner of Atlanta Dream Kelly Loeffler and the players.
As we previously reported, Loeffler is strongly opposed to the League’s support of the Black Lives Matter movement.
Some players have asked Loeffler to sell the team … by claiming she has different values compared to the players he benefits from.
Angel – who played for 10 years for The Dream – explains why he does NOT believe Loeffler is a racist … but could better educate himself on social justice issues.
Brandon Marshall – one of the first NFL players to kneel with Colin Kaepernick in 2016 – he told us why he still doesn’t fully accept Roger GoodellIt’s Mea Cupla about how the league has treated QB in the past.
Marshall says he doesn’t think progress can really be made until Kaepernick gets a job in the NFL again.
One thing Marshall makes perfectly clear, Kaepernick was train like a maniac … and he’s still dead serious about wanting to resume his NFL career.
