Bucks Expected Strike To Be For One Game Counted As Loss

For the second consecutive day, the WNBA postponed three games following the weekend shooting of Jacob Blake. Los Angeles Clippers coach Doc Rivers went viral over openly discussing the situation after a game last night. The NBA said all three games would be rescheduled, but did not say when. After the games were postponed, the Bucks released a statement demanding accountability from Kenosha police and Wisconsin lawmakers. "That's why we took a stand to not play today".

"Some things are bigger than soccer and things need to change". Lasry wrote that on his personal Twitter account.

Some MLB games and WNBA games were also postponed in the wake of the Bucks' decision.

After word spread that the Bucks won't be playing, the Houston Rockets and Oklahoma City Thunder chose to not take the court for their playoff matchup on Wednesday night. "Game 5 of each series will be rescheduled". Numerous baseball teams followed suit, with many sports journalists urging other sports franchises to do the same. Kaepernick sat through the anthem for his first protest, which he said was to protest racial inequality and police mistreatment of minorities.

"Ending police brutality is more important than sports", tweeted Pirates infielder Cole Tucker. And that decision was probably made way earlier in the day.

Wisconsin Attorney General Josh Kaul on Wednesday evening for the first time revealed the identity of the Kenosha Police Department (KPD) officer who shot at 29 year-old Jacob Blake multiple times during a confrontation on August 23.

It was not clear yet when the season would resume, according to the person who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because neither the league nor the National Basketball Players Association had announced anything publicly.

In related news, 17-year-old white male Kyle Rittenhouse was arrested after shooting and killing two protesters in Kenosha and injuring a third, The New York Times reports. Blake was left paralysed by the shooting and is being treated for his injuries. We're the ones getting shot.

"If you're sitting here telling me that there was no way to subdue that gentleman, or detain him, or before the firing of guns, then you're sitting here, you're lying to not only me, you're lying to every African American, every Black person in the community because we see it over and over and over", James said. We've been hung. We've been shot. I keep hearing the question, "What's next?" The wisdom of proceeding with the playoffs in a protected "bubble" has dogged players since this experiment began, as they anxious that playing would remove the focus from the protests of systemic racism and the disproportionate effect COVID-19 has had on communities of color.
