TNT's Kenny Smith Walks Off Set In Support Of Players' Boycott

TNT's Kenny Smith walked off the set of Inside the NBA to support the players boycotting playoff games that were set to be played tonight in Orlando.

“Right now my head is ready to explode like in the thought of what’s going on,” Kenny Smith told viewers. I don’t know if I’m appropriate enough to say it what the players are feeling and how they’re feeling. I haven’t talked to any player.

"As a black man and former player I think it’s best for me to support the players and just not be here tonight," Smith said as he took off his mic. "And figure out what happens after that."
