Following Kyle Rittenhouse’s verdict in Wisconsin, National Basketball Social Justice Coalition Executive Director James Cadogan released a statement. As we sometimes do with issues bigger than basketball, we’ve decided to let the voices of the NBA’s Social Justice Coalition take hold, closing the comments section for this post.
“Our thoughts are with the families of those who lost their lives in this tragedy. The right to protest peacefully is the cornerstone of our democracy and National Basketball Social Justice Alliance remains committed to protecting that right for all. Any form of lethargy in our society is unacceptable.”
