Chris Paul and Andre Iguodala were the ones that convinced the NBA players to resume and finish the season, per David Aldridge of The Athletic.

Paul, the president of the NBPA, noted the financial implications that would follow if play was stopped.

At the same time, Iguodala, vice president of the NBPA, told the players they should see the bigger picture and avoid losing their platforms to speak on this cause.

“Sources say Chris Paul, the president of the players’ union, and vice president Andre Iguodala led the way, throughout the night and into the meeting today, in getting players to see the bigger picture-not just the financial implications of walking away from the rest of the season, but losing the strength of the platform they have in the bubble to continue to push for the changes they want,” Aldridge reports.

The NBA players decided to boycott Wednesday’s and Thursday’s games as a way to protest for Jacob Blake’s shooting. Blake was shot seven times in the back by the police in Wisconsin over the weekend. He has been hospitalized and paralyzed from the waist down.

The league is hopeful the playoffs will resume on Friday or Saturday.
