Los Angeles Lakers star forward, Anthony Davis has said that he will wear his last name on the back of his jersey instead of a social justice statement.
Lakers teammate Lebron James also said that he will not have a social justice statement on his jersey and will wear his last name.
The NBA released a list of approved statements that players could put on their jerseys a couple weeks ago. James said that nothing on the list ”resonated with his goal.”
The list of statements included: Black Lives Matter, Vote, Say their names, I can’t breathe, Equality and freedom among others.
Davis has not yet said why he has chosen to not wear a social justice statement on his jersey.
