'Equality' and 'Black Lives Matter' Most Popular Messages for NBA Jerseys

"Equality" and "Black Lives Matter" are the two most popular phrases NBA players will use on the back of their jerseys when the 2019-20 season resumes in Orlando later this month.

The players had their choice of the following options for the back of their jerseys: Black Lives Matter; Say Their Names; Vote; I Can't Breathe; Justice; Peace; Equality; Freedom; Enough; Power to the People; Justice Now; Say Her Name; Sí Se Puede (Yes We Can); Liberation; See Us; Hear Us; Respect Us; Love Us; Listen; Listen to Us; Stand Up; Ally; Anti-Racist; I Am A Man; Speak Up; How Many More; Group Economics; Education Reform; and Mentor.

The jersey phrases are one of a number of social justice messages the NBA plans on delivering from Orlando.

Both ends of the court will have "Black Lives Matter" displayed prominently, and the league and union remain in discussion regarding other potential displays.

NBA deputy commissioner Mark Tatum says players will be provided with "Black Lives Matter" shooting shirts to wear, along with hoodies and shirts with phrases that include "Everybody Love Everybody," "Make the Change" and "Break the Cycle."
