Former Lobo Brian Urlacher criticizes NBA player boycott on Instagram


    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.- Former Chicago Bears’ linebacker and UNM Lobo football player Brian Urlacher posted a critical statement of the NBA player boycott on Instagram.

    The post on his Instagram story said, « Brett Favre played the MNF game the day his dad died, threw 4 TDs in the first half, and was a legend for playing in the face of adversity. NBA players boycott the playoffs because a dude reaching for a knife, wanted on a felony sexual assault warrant, was shot by police. »

    Urlacher was referring to the shooting of Jacob Blake in Kenosha, Wisconsin. Police said Blake had a knife in his vehicle, but they have not said he was reaching for it. Blake was shot seven times in the back after officers responded to a domestic disturbance. 

    The NBA playoffs were paused Wednesday after players decided they wouldn’t play. They wanted to bring attention to about racial discrimination and police brutality.
