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: He even wore special Martin Luther King Jr. basketball shoes for Minnesota's game last night against the Portland Trail Blazers: Eric Bledsoe wore his own MLK Day kicks: DeMarcus Cousins tweeted out this image: And John Wall: 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. Go Cats!
