The Milwaukee Bucks shook the world, when they didn’t get on the court for the Game 5 of the series vs. the Magic Wednesday to protest against racial injustice.

Giannis Antetokounmpo reflected on the impact of their action on Wednesday that followed by the players’ decision to go on a two-day strike.

The reigning MVP came up big in the court tonight for the Bucks, but, after the game, he said making the decision to not play was even bigger.

The Milwaukee Bucks will continue to demand change and speak out against racial injustice. During Game 5 of the series, the VP of the NBA franchise Alex Lasry was marching in Kenosha, per Adrian Wojnarowski.

Also before the game began, George Hill, who was a leading figure on Wednesday for the Bucks, stayed in the locker room during the national anthem.
