Several NBA games are played throughout the day, and as a result, players use these games as a platform to spread awareness to the importance of this day and the impact Dr. King made. Though he played last night, Karl-Anthony Towns was one of the biggest voices this afternoon: https://twitter.com/KarlTowns/status/953003185337196549 He even wore special Martin Luther King Jr. basketball shoes for Minnesota's game last night against the Portland Trail Blazers: https://twitter.com/Timberwolves/status/952730410991091712 Eric Bledsoe wore his own MLK Day kicks: https://twitter.com/NickDePaula/status/953031078561816576 DeMarcus Cousins tweeted out this image: https://twitter.com/boogiecousins/status/953036207683919872 And John Wall: https://twitter.com/JWFamFoundation/status/953014360863133696 Anthony Davis is featured on the NBPA #PlayersVoice video, where various NBA players discuss how they would finish the "I Have A Dream" speech in modern society: Well done, guys.
