Today, the Milwaukee Bucks made history when the team decided to boycott Game 5 of its playoff series against the Orlando Magic. The team’s decision comes after police shot Jacob Blake, a 29-year-old Black man, multiple times in the back Sunday in Kenosha, Wis. Just minutes after the news was announced, players from around the league weighed in. Denver Nuggets star point guard Jamal Murray was one of the first to make his voice heard.
