Report: Lakers, Clippers vote to boycott the season
The Milwaukee Bucks boycotted Game 5 against the Orlando Magic on Wednesday in the wake of the Jacob Blake shooting in Wisconsin. The other two games were postponed as well, including the Lakers-Portland Trail Blazers game.
Now, it appears the 2020 playoffs is in jeopardy of being toast.
Sources: The Lakers and Clippers have voted to boycott the NBA season. Most other teams voted to continue. LeBron James has exited the meeting.

The Lakers have the best record in the Western Conference standings. They are up 3-1 on the Blazers.
The Clippers, meanwhile, are in second place in the West. They are up 3-2 on Luka Doncic and the Dallas Mavericks.
If LeBron James doesn’t want to play basketball following the tragic Jacob Blake shooting, it’s unlikely games will be played.
