Players across the NBA were trying to process what happened. In fact, the Miami-Boston game was almost canceled.

But the players united and decided to play the game in hopes of bringing joy to people’s lives.

Many across the league took a knee during the national anthem – while wearing “black lives matter” shirts.

Saying it’s a new year, but some things remain the same.

Meanwhile, the NFL said there will be no changes to Saturday’s playoff game in Maryland.
