The Spurs resume their season this evening, and as part of the “Black Lives Matter” movement supported by the NBA, players have an option of a message to wear on their jersey.

For those, like me, who do not speak Italian, Marco Belinelli will be wearing “ugualianza,” which translates to “equality.” Bryn Forbes will also sport “Equality,” but in his native English.

Lonnie Walker IV and Jakob Poeltl have chosen “Black Lives Matter.”

Keldon Johnson and Drew Eubanks will have “Justice” on their backs.

Derrick White chose “Enough.”

Quinndary Weatherspoon has chosen “I Can’t Breathe,” referencing George Floyd directly.

And Luka Samanic has chosen to honor “Freedom” with his jersey.

Trey Lyles chose “Antiracist” though he is not playing during the pandemic series.

I was searching the NBA Store to see if they are selling these specialized jerseys, but I could not find any availability at this time. I will update as information becomes available.
