Irving and others against NBA resuming its season
via: Bleacher Report.

Kyrie Irving led a call of more than 80 players where they discussed multiple topics, including the possibility of not traveling to Orlando due to the current situation in the United States.

Shams Charania from The Athletic reported that veterans such as Chris Paul, Kevin Durant and Carmelo Anthony supported the idea of not attending to the resumed NBA season in Florida.

Some other figures like Donovan Mitchell and Dwight Howard also spoke about the risks players are taking due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

According to Charania, Irving was decisive on his posture of not attending Orlando, despite Brooklyn being the 7th. seed in the Eastern Conference at the moment. 

"I don’t support going into Orlando. I’m not with the systematic racism and the bull***. Something smells a little fishy...I’m willing to give up everything I have (for social reform)."
