“Now our focus should not be entirely on basketball,Although I know it’s the playoffs……But we still have a bigger potential problem happening,And what we are trying is not working,therefore,We definitely need to use a different method.”Smart continued.

“We tried peacefully kneeling and waiting for protest,For us,Try to get here,Get together to play games,Try to deliver our voice.But it doesn’t work,So obviously we have to do something more.We have to take a different approach,Try new things,Let this thing work the way we know and want,Let our voices be heard more.”Smart said so.
