Around and around we go, folks. The national anthem protests aren’t coming to an end. I think you can expect this to happen a lot in the NBA.

Also, Zion Williamson wore a Black Lives Matter t-shirt before the game, which isn’t that big of a deal. It’s just another sign of the times.
Don’t forget, the NBA is allowing social justice messages on uniforms now.
