Chris Paul shared his thoughts on some NBA stars not having a social justice message on their jerseys in the restart of the league.

The superstar of the Oklahoma City Thunder and president of the NBPA said he respects the players’ decision and believes players may have specific reasons to make that choice.

“That’s exactly why we have a league where you get a chance to make a choice. And I respect any of those guys’ decisions. They may have their reasons why or not.

For me … I was excited about the opportunity to speak on ‘Equality’ because I was asked about it. And also, for me, I envisioned my kids watching the game, my homies back home who go to the barbershops and talk about us and what not,” Paul told Marc J. Spears of The Undefeated.
