Chris Webber, who would’ve been on the call during Wednesday night’s NBA games, got emotional tonight while talking about today’s events and the players’ boycott led by the Milwaukee Bucks that resulted in three playoff games being postponed, including the Magic-Bucks Game 6, Houston-Oklahoma and Lakers-Portland.
“Don’t listen to these people telling you don’t do anything because it’s not going to end right away,” Webber said to the players boycotting the NBA playoff games. “You are starting something for the next generation and the next generation to take over.”
“Do you have to be smart? Yes. Do you have to make sure you have a plan? Yes. Do you have to be articulate about that plan? Yes.”
He added, “I applaud it because it’s the young people leading the way.”
Wednesday night came to a close with the Bucks releasing their demands for Wisconsin politicians and law enforcement and want “meaningful measures to address issues of police accountability, brutality, and criminal justice reform.”
