Kyrie Irving was Right the Whole Time

The Milwaukee Bucks and the Orlando Magic have decided to boycott their game 5 match up Wednesday in response to the Kenosha Police shooting Jacob Blake SEVEN TIMES!

Several other teams such as the Rockers, Thunder, Raptors and Celtics have also discussed boycotting their matchups but this highlights that Kyrie Irving was right the whole time. During a movement, we do not need to fight amongst each other when we have the same goal but we have to highlight the Kyrie was right.

Prior to the restart, Irving led a Zoom call with more than 80 NBA players, some vocally hesitant to restart the season. The call included Donovan Mitchell, Carmelo Anthony, Joel Embiid, Malcolm Brogdon, Avery Bradley, Mike Conley, Dwight Howard, and many more. The players were asking hard questions about whether the league should resume play amid social justice and coronavirus concerns, and discussing the consequences of those actions. It was a group discussion of what is ultimately a very personal decision for players, and they wanted their voices heard — many players didn’t feel that was the case.

Irving said he doesn’t like the optics of many Black players in the NBA going to a quarantined city to entertain the masses, taking the spotlight off the Black Lives Matter movement and much-needed police and social reforms.

“I don’t support going into Orlando. I’m not with the systematic racism and the bulls***. Something smells a little fishy.”- Kyrie Irving

Many players disagreed with Kyrie stating the financial implications of them sitting out. Some players who were not stars added that he was selfish for saying players should sit out because he has the money to do so but most of the leagues players live pay check to pay check thus it would hurt them dearly.

Well with all that being said, we are back at square one. The cops shot another unarmed man and now the players in the league are doing exactly what Kyrie said they should do.

I am most interested to see if the players go all the way and have the playoffs canceled or if the teams plan on just sitting out one game.

Do you believe Kyrie was right the whole time?
