The Los Angeles Lakers and Los Angeles Clippers reportedly are in favor of boycotting the rest of the NBA postseason, according to multiple reports.
They were the only teams to oppose finishing the season during a passionate meeting held Wednesday night. The informal vote, according to ESPN, came after the NBA postponed all three games that day following a boycott from the Bucks that was held in response to the Jacob Blake shooting 45 minutes away from Milwaukee.
LeBron James walked out of the meeting, and the rest of Lakers and Clippers exited behind him, according to the Athletic.
Sources told the Athletic that Miami Heat veteran Udonis Haslem spoke in the meeting and essentially told everyone in room that — without Lakers and Clippers, two of the NBA’s top teams, how will season continue?
A formal vote is expected to take place in the coming days, as Thursday’s game likely will also be postponed.
“Everyone is still too emotional,” one high-ranking source told ESPN. “There needs to be more time to come together on this.”
