Following the postponement of all NBA games today, athletes in other sports have joined in, in solidarity, and boycotted their scheduled games:
WASHINGTON, D.C., USA — Three NBA, three WNBA games, three MLB games and five MLS matches were postponed Wednesday, led by a boycott by the Milwaukee Bucks of its playoff game due to the police shooting of Black man Sunday in the team's home state.
Soccer players from Atlanta United and Inter Miami stood together on field before calling off the match.
When professional sports began to return, my fear was that it would possibly distract Americans from the solidarity and sense of urgency that so many of us felt after the murder of George Floyd. So I take heart that professional athletes at least for one night are refusing to play in light of the tragic events in Kenosha.
