Chris Paul opened up about the NBA players’ decision to boycott Wednesday’s and Thursday’s games in order to protest for Jacob Blake shooting.

The superstar of the Oklahoma City Thunder and president of the NBPA said he was proud of the NBA solidarity after the players’ meeting on Wednesday.

“Fifteen years in this league and I’ve never seen a thing like it. Honestly. I wasn’t the oldest one in the room — I think Udonis Haslem was — but the voices that were heard, I’ll never forget it, I’ll never forget it.

For a lot of us, you get a chance to read and see pictures of the Cleveland Summit, those who came before us, the Muhammad Alis, the Jim Browns, the Kareem Abdul-Jabbars, and how powerful they were. We’re not saying that we’re that, but what we’re doing in our league right now is huge.

I think for the young guys in our league, they get a chance to see how guys are really coming together and speaking and see real change, real action.

Because guys are tired. Like, I mean, tired. When I say ‘tired,’ we’re not physically tired, we’re just tired of seeing the same thing over and over again, right?” Paul said, via Ben Spratt of Sporting News.

The NBA will resume the season on Saturday, with three games scheduled to take place.
