Silver to Yahoo: Yes on players' social commentary, no on uniforms
"I respect Derrick Rose and all of our players for voicing their personal views on important issues, but my preference would be for players to abide by our on-court attire rules," Silver told Yahoo Sports in an email on Monday night.
Silver was courtside at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn and witnessed Cleveland Cavaliers stars LeBron James and Kyrie Irving wearing the T-shirts in response to a New York grand jury failing to bring charges against a police officer in the death of Eric Garner. The arrest of Garner, an African-American man, was caught on tape as the officer placed him in a chokehold despite repeated pleas of "I can't breathe," heard on tape.
Rose wore the "I Can't Breathe," shirt in warmups of the Bulls game on Sunday in Chicago.
Kentucky's Noel claims top spot in first mock draft
Which makes Tuesday night interesting March Madness Challenge in so many ways. The Cavs won the lottery for the second time in three years, this time with Nerlens Noel as the likely target as help for the unit that finished 30th in the league in shooting defense. But the Kentucky power forward-center will miss summer league and training camp and at least one full month of the regular season, by his own estimate, while coming back from knee surgery.
The team that has enough young players will obviously consider trades heading toward selections on June 27. But with this draft class and this player that would not have been No. 1 any other year, even when healthy, the offers won't be pouring in.
