Some NBA players protest return

Hoops fans in the Door Peninsula are hoping to see the Bucks back on the court in July, but there are several high profile NBA players who are trying to derail the league’s restart plans. Bleacher Report says the most notable athlete is Kyrie Irving of the Brooklyn Nets. Irving thinks that moving players to an isolated location at Disney World in Orlando stifles their ability to be a part of a more significant social movement that is happening with the George Floyd protests. Irving has been an outspoken critic of the NBA for years and reportedly has gone so far as to pitch the idea of a new league to teammate Kevin Durant.
