Bucks forward Kyle Korver discussed Milwaukee’s decision to strike in a town hall at Creighton University on Sunday. Korver detailed the emotional nature of the Bucks’ locker room as well as the decision made by point guard George Hill that led to the team’s protest. “I just sat there with tears running down my face,” Korver said. “And I’m looking at my jersey that says Black Lives Matter, and I’m like, ‘what are we doing?'” “One teammate, George Hill decided he wasn’t going to play. …We all just sat there and were like, ‘we’re all with you.'”
Within the video above, Korver describes the situation with Bucks assistant Darvin Ham addressing the team before the scheduled game. Ham has a pair of sons that live in the Milwaukee area, and Korver describes an emotional scene. “I just sat there in my chair, with tears running down my face,” Korver said. “And I’m looking at my jersey that says Black Lives Matter, and I’m just like ‘What are we doing?’”
The full video is certainly worth viewing, and Korver provides context and insight for what took place. In addition, he shed light on being an ally in this situation. “How do I help as a white man? What do I say as a white man in this space? You know what you do,” Korver said. “You stand with the marginalized. And, when you can, you amplify their voice. And you listen to their thoughts. And you listen to their ideas. And you find your way to help out.”
Milwaukee Bucks guard Kyle Korver returned to his alma mater on Sunday night to participate in a discussion on white privilege and systemic racism. The 2003 Creighton graduate and 2018 Creighton Athletics Hall of Fame inductee was joined by 2007 Creighton alum Josh Dotzler and current women’s basketball junior guard Rachael Saunders before an audience that included current Bluejay student-athletes and staff in addition to many more on the school’s YouTube channel.
