Draymond Green watched a historic sports day from afar on Wednesday like many of the rest of us.

The Warriors forward watched the Milwaukee Bucks boycott Game 5 of their first round playoff series against the Orlando Magic in light of the shooting of Jacob Blake, a 29-year-old Black man, who was shot seven times in the back by a white police officer in Kenosha, Wis. In total, three NBA playoff games, three WNBA games, three MLB games and four MLS games were called off.

But Green doesn't exactly believe "sports can wait" right now.

Green is a big fan of the Bucks reaching out to the attorney general of Wisconsin, but further explained his stance on the situation in Orlando as teams contemplate cancelling the rest of the NBA season.

The Warriors sent a loud message on social media Wednesday in solidarity of the Bucks and other NBA teams' decisions to boycott games.

The graphic the Warriors posted contains contact information for the Kenosha district attorney, mayor and city administrator, as well as the Wisconsin Department of Justice. "We support NBA players in taking actions designed to shed light and send a loud and clear message: enough is enough," the Warriors wrote in closing. "We are united in our stance against racial injustice."

 

The NBA Board of Governors reportedly are meeting Thursday morning at 11 A.M. ET, according to Yahoo Sports' Vincent Goodwill. Players will meet at the same time, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski and Malika Andrews reported Wednesday. Wojnarowski also reported it's "unlikely" the three playoff games scheduled for Thursday will take place on that date.
