Kyle Korver to wear ‘Black Lives Matter’ on jersey

(WKOW) -- Milwaukee Bucks sharpshooter Kyle Korver made the decision to wear “Black Lives Matter” on the back of his jersey Sunday.

According to a Tweet from SportsCenter, Korver chose to use "Black Lives Matter" on the back of his jersey because "those three words encapsulate his entire message."

According to the NBA, players are allowed to have social justice messages on the back of their jerseys during the first four days of the restart of the NBA season, beginning July 30.

After the first four days, players can opt to still have the social justice message on the back of their jerseys, but their last name must be beneath.
