Without even mentioning that he was a professional basketball player, Utah Jazz guard Nigel Williams-Goss accepted an open invitation to take the mic at Thursday evening’s protest on Capitol Hill condemning racial injustice and police brutality.
According to multiple reports, the NBA will bring 22 teams to the ESPN Wide World Of Sports complex on the Disney campus near Orlando and play eight regular-season games to determine playoff seeding before the postseason begins.
