Hi everyone !
Like I promised today I’m going to tell you about the MLK day in NBA.
First of all what is the MLK day ?
MLK stands for Martin Luther King, the famous nonviolent activist for civil rights of black people. He played a major role in the emancipantion of African Americans, he is famous for he’s speech which starts by “I have a Dream” that became a hymne to solidarity and hope for all americans.
The MLK day is a public holiday and is celebrated annually on the third monday of January , around January 15 , the anniversary of the reverend.
Like Chrismas Day, MLK day is celebrate by the NBA league. In that perspective every NBA franchise play on this particular day.
For instance this year, we saw Charlotte Hornets – Utah Jazz, Washington Wizards – Portland Trail Blazers or the impresive Cleveland Cavaliers – Golden State Warriors.
It was an amazing night with a lot of great moves just before the famous NBA all star game.
See you next time to talk about the All Star Games.
