Blazers Support NBPA's "Let Us Play" Twitter Campaign

36

On Monday, National Basketball Players Association president Derek Fisher launched a campaign on Twitter focused around the phrases "let us play" and "stand united." The two-fold goal being, obviously, to appeal to fans during the ongoing lockout imposed by the NBA's owners and to encourage union solidarity. Portland Trail Blazers LaMarcus Aldridge (here), Wesley Matthews (here), Nolan Smith (here), Patty Mills (here) and Armon Johnson (here) all tweeted in support of the campaign, which became a national trending topic. The strategy followed in the footsteps of the National Football League's players, who ran a similar campaign during their labor negotiations with the NFL earlier this year. -- Ben Golliver | benjamin.golliver@gmail.com | Twitter
