The NBA postponed all games on Wednesday after the Milwaukee Bucks’ decision to boycott Game 5 against the Orlando Magic led to a number of other teams deciding to follow suit.

Players in Orlando have been vocal following the Jacob Blake shooting in Kenosha, and things came to a head Wednesday with the postponements.

Numerous players took to Twitter to support Bucks players and call for action. The Bucks themselves spoke to the Attorney General and Lieutenant Governor in the state of Wisconsin.

Meanwhile, Inside The NBA commentator and former NBA champion Kenny Smith is standing with the players.

Smith said he fully supports the players in their decisions, and he actually left the set on Wednesday afternoon.

“The Jet” has previously lauded NBA  players for maintaining their focus on social justice in Orlando.

Smith seems to be showing solidarity with the players as they figure out how to manifest real and tangible change through their actions.
