Led by NBA, athletes again put focus on racial justice

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) — NBA players didn’t come to Disney solely for a restart. They wanted reform. The Milwaukee Bucks showed how far they’re willing to go to get it by opting not to play in their playoff game Wednesday. Two more games were postponed later in the day, the second time this season NBA basketball came to an immediate halt. Other sports followed, just as they did in March when the season was suspended four months because of the coronavirus pandemic. Later Thursday, the NBA’s board of governors meet and likely will address whether the playoff games scheduled for the night will be played. The players also meet separately to decide how long the stoppage lasts.
