The Milwaukee Bucks guard has a platform as an NBA player and plans to be “that voice” to shine a light on the poor treatment of black men by police. “I’ve questioned it a few times, just trying to brainstorm and figure out, ‘Why me?’ But I got a platform that a lot of people don’t have,” the 23-year-old Brown told The Undefeated this week at the NBA summer league. “And for the people that do have a platform that haven’t experienced it, it’s just something I got to take on and I just got to do it. I got to be that voice, and once it’s time to actually step up and do something and put things into play, I can’t look nowhere else but forward and try to make things happen.”

Brown admitted that he should not have parked there and deserved a ticket. But he also said the punishment from the police far exceeded the crime. Brown acknowledged there were no other cars in the parking lot during his quick late-night stop. “During the day I’m not going to park double handicap,” Brown said. “I was literally in and out. But I parked in a double handicap. I should have been given a ticket, no doubt about it. That has no justification to what escalated afterwards. So I did it, but what came after, you can’t even compare it to what I should’ve gotten for what happened.”
“I was trying to get out of the situation that was made,” Brown said. “I knew anything could happen and I tried to stay as calm as I could, especially once all the backup and everything came. I’m out there by myself. My [mindset] was definitely get home. At first, I was thinking, ‘All right, man, I got a ticket, I got to come out my pocket for some money, a big, healthy fine.’ Then once backup came, it was like, ‘All right, get home. Get home, get to your family, get back to what you love to do, get back to your job.’ That was pretty much my mindset.
