So she challenged him: Play, and donate the remainder of his 2019-20 salary to Black-owned businesses, non-profit organizations and initiatives. “I felt like I kind of needed a reason to go back and play — and my wife just said it. It kind of just hit her,” Holiday said. “There were other ideas we were thinking about. Obviously, I couldn’t go protest — my wife was pregnant and in L.A., the pandemic [made it] one of the hardest-hitting places … “[Donating my salary] wasn’t even like a question. It was kind of like, ‘Man, that’s what I’m supposed to do.’ Right when she told me, it just felt like it was right.”

Earlier this December, Holiday pledged the remainder of his 2020 salary to small businesses, nonprofits, and initiatives owned by members of the black community. Though the actual amount to be donated was undisclosed, Holiday’s current contract with the Bucks guarantees the 30-year old at least $25 million this 2020-21 season. “I’m blessed. God has blessed me with so much, playing this game of basketball and actually being paid quite handsomely for it,” Holiday told the NBA on TNT crew after the Bucks’ win against the Heat (via NBA on TNT). “The best thing I can do is to give back to my people during this crisis and time of need – to give what I can. I just want to set an example for everybody else, that we are blessed to be here and to be playing and to even have a job. Whatever you can give, for me it was money. I felt like money, especially with our economy and black and brown businesses, that was important to me and my family.”
