The Toronto Raptors left for the NBA bubble in a Black Lives Matter bus.
The defending NBA champions will be arriving at the Orlando bubble in style.
With the caption, “Silence is not an option,” three pictures of the Toronto Raptors bus were shared to the team’s Twitter account on Thursday evening as they departed for the bubble. The “Black Lives Matter” in white letters on the black bus with the Raptors logo at the back was a strong look.
The league previously announced Black Lives Matter will be painted on the courts when games resume. NBA players have been among the most vocal professional athletes in giving power and a big voice to the Black Lives Matter platform.
Toronto Raptors fans react to the Black Lives Matter bus.
The Raptors are widely considered to be one of the best-run organizations in the NBA and this is another example that’s being acknowledged by NBA Twitter and Raptors fans who had nothing but praise.
Even other NBA teams chimed in to applaud the Raptors.
The Washington Wizards and Phoenix Suns were among the NBA teams to admire the Raptors team bus.
Toronto’s first game of the NBA restart is scheduled for Aug. 1 against LeBron James, Anthony Davis and the Los Angeles Lakers. The Miami Heat, Orlando Magic, Boston Celtics, Memphis Grizzlies, Milwaukee Bucks, Philadelphia 76ers and Denver Nuggets are the other opponents on the remainder of the schedule before the playoffs begin.
