The Miami Heat delivered a message before Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals on Wednesday after a moment of silence for the Uvalde, Texas victims, via OutKick’s Alejandro Avila:

“The Heat urges you to contact your state’s senators by calling 202-224-3121 to leave a message demanding their support for commonsense gun laws. You can also make change at the ballot box. Visit heat.com/vote to register and let your voice be heard this fall.”

In response, United States Senator Marco Rubio fired off a tweet: “The NBA doesn’t like to talk about the billions they make from a China that enslaves Uyghur Muslims and harvests their organs. But they have no problem politicizing a horrific tragedy in America.”
