For once, NBA players have the referees on their side.
NBA officials in the Orlando bubble organized a march around Disney's Coronado Springs Resort on Thursday in support of their players after the Milwaukee Bucks' boycott of their Wednesday playoff game against the Orlando Magic led to two other games being postponed.
The event began at 9 a.m. ET as the officials came together to "march against racism" following the shooting of an unarmed Black man, Jacob Blake, by a white police officer in Kenosha, Wisc., on Sunday.
This is a powerful display of support by the NBA's refs for their players, who met Wednesday to discuss how to proceed with the rest of the postseason and reportedly are meeting again Thursday morning.
Game 1 of the Boston Celtics' and Toronto Raptors' second-round playoff series is scheduled for Thursday night, but it's unclear whether that game will be postponed, as well.
