NBA players 'demand justice' after the Bucks boycott Game 5 against the Magic.

Prior to the Bucks-Magic game, which was meant to begin at 4 p.m. ET, there had already been talk from members of the Toronto Raptors and Boston Celtics that boycotting play could become an option.

Raptors guard Fred VanVleet told reporters on Tuesday that he “was pretty excited and then we all had to watch Jacob Blake get shot yesterday. That changes the tone of things… It’s just starting to feel like everything we’re doing is just going through the motions, nothing’s changing.” Here are some of the reactions to the boycott across social media from other NBA players and personalities.

NBA this you?

Please remove the scare quotes from this headline. Don't make light of their demands.

Justice for? The 14 and 16 year olds this dude sexually assaulted!? The outcome doesn't match the crime however. But food for thought, 7 white people were shot and killed this week.

We demand justice (while a take a dump on my solid gold toilet)...beat it millionaires no one cares about your opinion while sitting in your golden palaces...

But nothing comes of the 'bitch ass white boy' comment that was CAUGHT ON CAMERA. Just let slide 🙄

Well now everything gonna be okay when Bucks boycott game 5.

Racism is solved!
