The Orlando Magic became a part of an unprecedented situation on Wednesday, after the Milwaukee Bucks decided to strike for social change in Game 5 of the playoff’s first round series.

The Orlando Magic and former Milwaukee guard Michael-Carter Williams opened up on the situation and the fight of the NBA players for social change.

“Maybe it wasn’t the best choice, but it is what it is. We stand with them. Maybe it was an inconvenience at the time, but I think it’s a lot bigger than that. We do stand with them. We support them and are there for them,” MCW said in an interview on the official site of the Orlando Magic as transcribed by USA TODAY Sports.

“It wasn’t easy. It’s not easy given what is all going on”, Williams said. “If we can go out there, do our best and also have a list of things we want to accomplish, then everything gets completed.”

The players made the decision to continue playing and keep the focus on the fight against the racial inequality and police brutality.
