Brian Urlacher, a former American football star, reacted to the NBA players boycotting playoff games in response to the shooting Jacob Blake.

He was critical of the NBA players and offered perspective by giving Brett Favre’s example who played in a football game on the day his father had died.

“Brett Favre played the MNF game the day his dad died, threw 4 TDs in the first half, and was a legend for playing in the face of adversity,” Urlacher wrote on his IG story.

“NBA players boycott the playoffs because a dude reaching for a knife, wanted on a felony sexual assault warrant, was shot by police.”
