He said his comments had been taken out of context, but the episode extinguished a degree of sympathy for his racist activism among many others. For others, it has completely destroyed all goodwill. “There`s a lot at stake, there`s a lot at stake,” Wallace, who played for the Detroit Pistons in 2004, told the BBC. Growing up poor and with few opportunities, sport is one of the few ways that young black men, in particular, can invent success. Joint STATEMENT from the NBA and NBPA: With the first half of the 2020/21 season, Which is fast approaching, here`s a preview of 20 must-see matches on NBA League Pass. “In the whole discussion of voter suppression, the November meeting was something that the players had in mind, and it was a way to ensure that there was concerted action to make November a real potential turning point,” Roberts told the wrestler.
