Some NBA players do not want to end the season because of racism

Some NBA players do not want to end the season due to the poor psychological environment associated with racism in the United States, former NBA player Matt Barnes said in a conversation with journalist Josiah Johnson.

The current NBA season was interrupted in March due to the coronavirus pandemic. On June 4, the league announced that the governing council approved a format for resuming the tournament with 22 teams participating in eight games each. Since at the time the teams stopped, they had a different number of matches, with the final distribution of places in the table, the main indicator will be the percentage of victories.

“Some players from the Lakers, some from the Clippers. There are rumors that some teams feel uncomfortable. Some guys want to play, and some don’t,” said Barnes, quoted by Johnson on his microblog on Twitter.
