The NBA players’ meeting over the resumption of the playoffs amid a protest against police brutality resulting from the Jacob Blake shooting in Wisconsin reportedly included a moment of tension between Los Angeles Clippers goaltender Patrick Beverley and the executive director of union Michele Roberts.
Beverley appears to be annoyed that Roberts is discussing the potential financial impact of canceling the playoffs in the name of social justice, Yahoo Sports reported Friday.

The veteran would have been heated by the conversation. Roberts asked if she could continue to make her point, and Beverley, according to Yahoo Sports, replied, “No, I’m paying your salary. “
Oklahoma City Thunder goalie Chris Paul and Miami Heat forward Udonis Haslem should have stepped into the conversation between the two and told Beverley that the union leader’s disrespect would not be tolerated during the meeting.BRIAN URLACHER SLAMS ON POSTS APPARENTLY REJECTING NBA PROTEST, PLANNING ‘FREE’ SHOOTING SUSPECT
The players would later agree to continue the rest of the season.
The Milwaukee Bucks went on strike Wednesday and did not show up to court for Game 5 against the Orlando Magic. This resulted in the postponement of several games and had a trickle down effect on the WNBA, MLB and ultimately the NHL.
