Milwaukee Bucks refusing to play to protest shooting



Listen to this article

The Milwaukee Bucks have chosen not to take the court in game five of the series against the Orlando Magic to protest the shooting of Jacob Blake.

The decision was made moments ago Wednesday as the two teams were scheduled to play.

The Magic were taking pregame shots, but the Bucks never came out of the locker room. Officials then went into the Bucks’ locker room to learn of the protest and the team’s refusal to play.

“We’re tired of the killings and the injustice,” Bucks guard George Hill told The Undefeated’s Marc J. Spears.

Blake, a Black man, was shot several times in the back by Wisconsin police Sunday. He survived, but is paralyzed and fighting for his life, according to CBS News. The shooting is under investigation by the Wisconsin Department of Justice.
