NBA Referees March Outside The Bubble To Show Support For The Boycott

No justice, no games!

Referee Marc Davis said to the players,

“We’re here and we support you. We’re here and we support you and protect your right to speak your truth.”

Aside from the three NBA games being canceled, five Major League Soccer matches, three Major League Baseball games and three WNBA games were postponed following the shooting of Jacob Blake, CBS Sports reports.
