According to CNN, it is no secret that the NBA has the highest proportion of black players in major sports in the United States. According to the American Institute of sports diversity and ethics, the proportion of black players in the NBA in 2019 is about 74%, and the proportion of people of color is about 83%. Its not hard to imagine the diversity of NBA fans and supporters. NBA fans are the most liberal of all male sports fans, according to an analysis by Fife thirtyeight, an American pollster. Among such fans, the message of racial justice conveyed by athletes is more likely to be accepted. In the past few years, there has been a significant increase in the discussion of social justice in professional sports in the United States, including NBA coaches, owners and other league leaders who have spoken out to defend their players.

According to CNN, NBA players have made clear through the storm how crucial their call for racial justice is and how much risk it takes to make people hear their demands. Today, the United States also issued an article pointing out that NBA players use their power and influence to try to create more meaningful changes. The article mentions that although the problem of racial discrimination can not be fundamentally solved, NBA involves a wide range of business, and its owner is one of the richest and most connected people in the United States, and its influence is very wide. There has never been an incentive to mobilize these resources, not just to fight discrimination on the basketball court, but to fight with the protestors.
