NBA To Play National Anthem Before All Games 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Tue Jun 30, 2020 8:03 pm

The NBA will play the national anthem before all games beginning on July 30th.

Adam Silver was asked whether players will be allowed to kneel during the anthem. The NBA has a rule that players must stand for the anthem.

"I’m not comfortable with the word 'allow,'" said Silver. "I think that we’ll deal with that situation when it presents itself."

The Canadian national anthem will also be played before every game involving the Toronto Raptors.

“Can players kneel in the pointless display when an anthem is played?”
“Well, we have an arbitrary rule that says they must stand”
