The NBA had a big lineup of playoff games scheduled for Wednesday night. None of them were played and the league postponed them after the Milwaukee Bucks decided not to take the floor for their game against the Orlando Magic and the rest of the teams followed.
The Bucks were boycotting their game due to the police shooting of Jacob Blake in Wisconsin and the violence and unrest that has followed. The games were officially listed as postponed and that didn't sit well with the league's biggest star LeBron James.
LeBron took to Instagram to make sure that his followers knew that the games were boycotted, not postponed.

Whether or not the season continues is very much up in the air right now. Players are expected to meet today to discuss the next steps. Canceling the season would be a mistake.
Most NBA players don't have the platform that the NBA has provided to speak out.
