I have a lot of respect for George Hill, Donovan Mitchell, & LeBron James sharing their raw emotions concerning Jacob Blake and social injustice in America.
I’m sure a lot of their teammates share their sentiments, but it’s great to see that Hill, Mitchell, & James took it upon themselves to use their platform to address the issue.
