Los Angeles Lakers forward Kyle Kuzma tweeted, “Looks like a tracking device.” “Does Adam Silver wear one with us while we’re all in there,” Brooklyn Nets guard Spencer Dinwiddie asked on Twitter. To be clear though, these devices are optional – an issue that has been collectively bargained between the league and the NBPA.

Top young players seek NBA insurance

On the cusp of hundreds of millions of dollars in contract extensions, several of the NBA’s top young stars had a Friday call with National Basketball Players Association officials about the possibility of league-financed insurance policies to protect against career-threatening injuries in the bubble restart in Orlando, sources tell ESPN. Miami’s Bam Adebayo, Sacramento’s De’Aaron Fox, the Los Angeles Lakers’ Kyle Kuzma, Utah’s Donovan Mitchell and Boston’s Jayson Tatum — five players with significant star and earning power — talked with executive director Michele Roberts and senior counsel Ron Klempner about the NBPA facilitating talks with the league on possible insurance allowances for players, sources said.

The NBPA and NBA have engaged on the possibility of protections for players in the event of serious COVID-19 illnesses or career-threatening injuries suffered in Orlando, sources told ESPN. The union and league are still negotiating details on the revised terms to the collective bargaining agreement before the 22-team restart. Together, Adebayo, Fox, Kuzma, Mitchell and Tatum have hoped the collective voice of such a starry group of elite young talent could shape the league’s thinking on sharing in the risk on insurance not only for them, but a broader swath of players returning to the season’s restart in Orlando, sources said.
You’ve said on Instagram in regards to racial injustice: “This virus has been around us for 400 years. There is still no vaccine.” How were you impacted by the death of George Floyd? Kyle Kuzma: It just hurt. It is a continued thing that is really going on in our society that is kind of a trend that is happening for years and years. For me, it’s the Achilles’ heel for our country, and holding back a lot of different things for us to grow as a country and society.
What are the systemic issues that you would like to see changed? Kyle Kuzma: One thing that people always talk about is, ‘It’s the police. It’s the police …’ It’s not necessarily the police. One, it’s the system and how laws are made against African Americans. Not only African Americans, but people of color as a whole. Also, from the system that was built years and years ago and back to slavery. There are racist people in positions of power who keep us from doing things we want to do.
Tell us about your recent column in The Players’ Tribune, “Ain’t No Sticking to Sports.” Kyle Kuma: I know everyone has a story of racism in their life no matter if you’re white or black. Any type of color, you’ve experienced some kind of racism. It sucks having to watch your back. Or having to dummy down yourself because of whatever in society. I just wanted to share my story upon it. … Keep the conversation going, and keep the awareness going. Because that’s the biggest thing. If we don’t talk about it, it’s going to continue to be here and not change.
Kyle Kuzma: That’s why white people have to realize, it’s not just about your “heart” or your individual mindset. Like how some people say, “I don’t have a racist bone in my body.” Well, the system does, and you can’t see it because it benefits you. The best analogy I’ve heard that explains white privilege is that it’s like an invisible backpack that every white person wears. If you’re white and you’re ever in a situation where you might need help, you can take that backpack off, open it up, and pull out all sorts of s—. Get Out of Jail Free card. Job opportunities. Health benefits. Housing loans. Don’t get me wrong. Black people can get those things, too, but it’s a lot harder.
Not because all drugs are super, super harmful to society, but because drugs were something very prevalent in black communities. It was how people put food on the table for their families in neighborhoods where people were frozen out of jobs. So, what happened next? Let’s crack down. “Zero Tolerance.” You’re a prisoner now. From having just a gram or two of weed. See the connection? That’s what people are talking about when they speak about how racism is systemic. You think this moment happened because all police are just terrible, terrible people? Nah, it’s wayyy bigger than that.

Sitting down with Portland Trail Blazers forward Carmelo Anthony on his YouTube Live show “What’s In Your Glass,” the 24-year-old third-year player said that others still buy into the notion that it’s the police department’s fault. “Out there, it’s a lot of good cops, too. You’ve got to look at both spectrums, but there’s a lot of racist people out there that are in cop uniforms and for me, I think, it’s more so about the system than it is the actual departments,” the Lakers youngster eloquently explained.

Vince the Barber, owner of Grey Matter in Los Angeles, who counts Kyle Kuzma, Danny Green, Ludacris and Dame Dash as clients — in addition to the many celebrities who go to him when in LA, such as Damian Lillard, Lewis Hamilton and 21 Savage. “I’m like, ‘No. What you need a cut for?’ It’s tough. I’ve got kids,” Garcia said. “But even if I didn’t, I still wouldn’t. It’s different telling them no. But I feel like as hard as it is, it’s still not worth risking.”
