Stephen A. “unbelievable” Raptors not playing Game 1 in protest of police brutality

  • As protests continue over the shooting of Jacob Blake in Kenosha, Wisconsin, a group of NBA players are reportedly considering a playoff boycott.
  • Raptors and Celtics players have discussed boycotting Game 1 of the teams’ second-round playoff series, which begins Thursday night.
  • The NBA Players Association is reportedly in ‘active discussions’ about a potential boycott.  Raptors coach Nick Nurse told ESPN that players would meet to discuss the issue on Wednesday.
  • How would a playoff boycott go over with the public?  Would it send the right message?  If they did boycott, how should the league handle it?
