Boston Celtics player Jaylen Brown thinks gun violence could result in players sitting out.

After multiple tragic shootings around the country, people are debating what we can do to improve safety and protect the Second Amendment. Brown, who is playing in the finals against the Warriors, thinks players sitting out might be on the table. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

“It could. I mean, you keep an open mind. You never know. Definitely, things need to be addressed,” Brown said in part when asked if players could boycott the NBA Finals over gun violence.

He also added that a boycott could raise awareness. You can watch his full comments below.

If players sit out of the NBA Finals because of gun violence in America, the NBA as we know it will officially be over. The league already has nonstop problems since deciding to bend the knee to China and go woke.

Think about the last time the NBA was taken seriously. It’s been years, and the relationship the league has with Beijing has become nothing short of shameful.

Fans have revolted, the games don’t get great ratings and the league feels like it’s becoming increasingly less relevant every year.

If players refuse to play in the NBA Finals because of guns in America, you can kiss goodbye any credibility the NBA might have left, which isn’t much at all.

Fans want to watch sports and support our teams. We don’t want to watch athletes grandstand on issues they probably aren’t experts on.

Focus on playing basketball and leave politics to other people. Sports are supposed to be an escape.
