Brooklyn Nets superstar Kyrie Irving committed $1.5 million as a fund to help WNBA players who chose to opt out the remainder of the season.
Irving himself did not participate on the NBA bubble restart as part of his stand against racial injustice.
WNBA players who sat out due to coronavirus or racial injustice will be the beneficiaries of the support from Irving.
“Whether a person decided to fight for social justice, play basketball, focus on physical or mental health, or simply connect with their families, this initiative can hopefully support their priorities and decisions,” Irving said.
The WNBA also resume their season in Florida with players voicing out their stand of the current state of racial injustice in the country.
