NBA to Reportedly Paint “Black Lives Matter” On Courts in Walt Disney World

Walt Disney World is preparing to welcome back the NBA for its resumed 2019-20 season starting in late July, and preparations are already underway across various resorts. However, it seems the NBA has some preparations to make of their own ahead of the start of the season, with a focus on social justice in the wake of various protests and the murder of George Floyd.

According to ESPN, the NBA is planning on painting “Black Lives Matter” on the courts they will use across Walt Disney World Resort’s ESPN Wide World of Sports. Members of the WNBA have also suggested wearing shirts with the phrase “Say Her Name” on them to bring light to female victims of police brutality, like Breonna Taylor.

Disney recently took a stand against racial inequality across all of its social media channels, emphasizing the need to “unite and speak out” against racism.

Are you looking forward to watching the NBA resume its season at the Most Magical Place on Earth?

Don’t worry Karen I’m sure the basketball court you will never visit will be returned to whatever state it is in after they depart *rolls eyes*

Sam I would appreciate it if you do not use my wife’s name in your rant. It’s very offensive, but I’m sure you don’t care.

I guess Sam can say what he wants and that saying “Karen” means its OK to label people and be negative.

Sort of like everyone in every comment section of this site crying about “all lives matter” and refusing to wear face masks, and throwing fits about changing a ride based of a racist film? But yes be upset about a comment section troll being called a Karen of all things.

Stop ignoring hundreds of years of systemic racism. I’m sorry you mistake tough truths as bullying but until everyone in this country is treated fairly, nobody deserves to be able to be ignorant. That applies to Disney too sorry to burst your bubble.

One thing i’ve noticed about this site, anything hating modern Disney with “Walt would’ve hated it” would get upvotes, the opposite would get downvotes,
Honestly some people just want to watch basketball without politics.
EDIT: WDWNT is a rather… “conservative” group of people, you should comment on another Disney site if you don’t want to be downvoted.

You all need to wake up. Do know BLM is funded by socialist leaders? The gave awards to the socialist leader in Venezuela. They are for no one. They don’t support anyone’s rights. They are here to take away your rights!!! Crack open a book people. This is how socialism starts!! For all of those that support it, shame on you. Put all of the events together from this year…..plain as day. Happens around every election. Democrats and Socialist promise you everything and in the end take away everything

How exactly is changing a court “disgusting” to you? I’m going to be you have never even stepped on the ESPN property let alone played on the courts. Why you feel the need to keep suppressing other segments of our population with your fragile antiquated views is the truly disgusting thing here.
