Leonard is not the only player to choose “Equality,” as he is joined by Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert, Portland Trail Blazers center Jusuf Nurkic and Milwaukee Bucks guard Pat Connaughton.
Nurkic, a former teammate of Leonard in Portland, will have his statement in Bosnian.
The list of messages that the NBA and the NBPA agreed to are the following: Black Lives Matter; Say Their Names; Vote; I Can’t Breathe; Justice; Peace; Equality; Freedom; Enough; Power to the People; Justice Now; Say Her Name; Sí Se Puede (Yes We Can); Liberation; See Us; Hear Us; Respect Us; Love Us; Listen; Listen to Us; Stand Up; Ally; Anti-Racist; I Am A Man; Speak Up; How Many More; Group Economics; Education Reform; and Mentor.
As it gets closer to the day of the league’s restart, it will be interesting to see what messages players decide to use on their jerseys.
