Jabari Parker is the first NBA player to give Colin Kaepernick a show of support. With NBA training camp just a couple weeks and the regular season less than 2 months away, he’s unlikely to be the last. Even if the attention to Kaepernick’s protest dies down, expect NBA players to pick up the mantle. That might also mean more players in the top-selling jersey in the NFL.
TMZ regular Nick Young has also “weighed in” on the situation, saying he might sit for a National Anthem. He would kneel, but his knees hurt. Somehow I feel like Young wasn’t giving the photographer shouting news topics at him the full and undivided attention he deserved.
