Original title: George fully supports the NBA to stop Morris: yesterday’s game should not be played
On January 8, 2021, Beijing time, a major riot broke out in Washington, USA yesterday. A large number of Trump supporters demonstrated in front of the US Capitol and violent clashes broke out. This riot has once again attracted intense attention from NBA players and coaches. Lakers star LeBron James, Heat star Dwyane Wade, 76ers coach Doug Rivers and others also made comments. The Clippers star Paul George even thought the NBA had suspended the game again to condemn the incident.
“I fully support the league suspension. I think this should be resolved, but there is a problem, because people watch basketball games can bring some enthusiasm. But I absolutely support the NBA suspension.” Paul-George said.
In addition, Clippers forward Marcus Morris also supports the NBA suspension. He believes that it is not enough for the players to kneel and express their dissatisfaction when the Warriors and the Clippers played the national anthem last game. “I personally think that this is not enough. I think we shouldn’t play games. Our two teams have never discussed the issue of strikes, but we think that some things are more important than basketball.” Marcus Morris said.
It is worth mentioning that after the riots yesterday, the Boston Celtics and the Miami Heat held a player-only meeting in the locker room before the game. The meeting lasted about 45 minutes. The Celtics had refused to play against the Heat, but then the team announced their participation in the game and issued a joint statement with the Heat.
