    The National Basketball Association sent a memo late Friday to all 30 teams instructing players to stand for the US national anthem, and warning teams there should not be any exceptions.

    As a result, the NBA which has seen a similar steep drop in viewership in recent years is taking emergency proactive measures, and according to the Associated Press, NBA Commissioner Adam Silver said he expected players would stand for the anthem, followed up by a memo in which the NBA "recommended teams address fans or show videos expressing themes of unity before their first home games," while again reminding them of the rule that players must stand for the national anthem

    NBA suggests to teams unity ideas, reminds of anthem rule

    The NBA may be making a mistake, while they're not The Congress, the teams and/or players in the NBA can choose to protest black live matters ( for that is the issue for the land of the free is not color blind ) not the spin trump wants the biddable to believe and spread - in many different manners.
