Last week, it was revealed that players will have the option of replacing their last name on their jerseys with a statement on social justice when the NBA season resumes on July 30, in Orlando.

This is one of the results coming from the NBPA working on ideas with the NBA and Nike on how players could voice their support of the ‘Black Lives Matter’ movement.

The NBPA and NBA have now agreed to a list of social messages that can be put on jerseys, per ESPN:
