Ever since the NBA was planning its return from the coronavirus pandemic that has taken over the world, racial strife has hit an all-time world high after the police killing of George Floyd. Players were plotting on how to continue being vocal about the plight of Black people when it comes to police brutality. The Los Angeles Lakers players took it a step further earlier this week when they donned what looked like red Make America Great Again (MAGA) baseball caps, but, the words ‘Great Again’ were crossed out and underneath the crossed-out words were the phrase “Arrest the Cops That Murdered Breonna Taylor” according to CNN.

On Tuesday night, right before they played their very first playoff game against the Portland Trail Blazers, LeBron James and several of his teammates were seen walking in with the red caps on their head.
