The Boston Celtics will not play their first second-round playoff game against the Toronto Raptors tonight in Orlando. In fact, the NBA announced Thursday that there will be no playoffs for the second day in a row, after the Milwaukee Bucks refused to take the floor Wednesday to call attention to the police shooting of Jacob Blake, an unarmed Black man, in Kenosha, Wisconsin.
We take calls with Howard Bryant, a senior writer for ESPN and sports correspondent for NPR's Weekend Edition Saturday.
