Kyle Korver has voiced his concerns over the NBA Bubble plan and how he is ready to give up a championship if it help brings about change
Whether the NBA players will step on the court on 31st July at Walt Disney World or they will be supporting the American Black community in their fight against racial discrimination is the question that everyone is asking.
Some players like LeBron James, Austin Rivers, and Danny Green think that the two things can go on simultaneously, but a Kyrie Irving led group of players feel the NBA re-start would taken the limelight off the ‘Black Lives Matter’ movement
Korver cares about change and not the NBA Championship
Milwaukee Bucks forward Kyle Korver in conversation with former NBA player and ESPN analyst Richard Jefferson said that he will support his Black teammates. However, if abandoning the 2019-20 season is the way to bring social reform then he is with them.
Kyle said “If we think that is the best way for change, I care more about change happening than a championship. On the other side, I am on a team that feels like we could win. And I have never won. I would like to win. So is there a way to do both? I think there’s a conversation there. But again, I’m going to follow the lead of my black brothers and teammates on this.”

Kyle thinks the NBA should step forward
Kyle thinks that alongside the players, NBA should also take a firm decision on the ongoing dispute of NBA season restart. He is looking forward to what the NBA will do against the ongoing Racial movements like “Black Lives Matter”.
Kyle further added “I want change to happen. And I want to play a role in that however I can,” he said.
“I think there’s an opportunity in Orlando to be like, ‘How can we highlight change?’ The NFL’s come out with a $250 million [over 10 years to fight systemic racism] kind of their pledge how they’ll be about change. What’s the NBA going to do?”
Eastern Conference top seed Milwaukee Bucks with a (53-12) record has the best chance to seal the trophy for the second time after 1971 championship win.
