The league allowed players to wear one of the slogans of social justice on their uniforms. Butler’s plan was to wear a shirt with only his number. The “Heat” defender meant that he was the same as everyone else.
Before the start of the game, Butler was forced to change his shirt.
“Being an NBA player doesn’t mean I have different rights than others,” the American said.
The “Heat” team won the match with the result 125: 105.
Butler has stood out this season with an average of 20.2 points per game, 6.6 rebounds and 6.1 assists.
