The NBA and NBPA followed up on last week’s news regarding customized social-justice inspired messaging on jerseys with an approved list of phrases for the Orlando restart. ESPN’s Marc Spears delivered the the complete list.

The list of the suggested social messages that were agreed upon by the NBPA and the NBA and then made available to players via email, per the source, are: Black Lives Matter; Say Their Names; Vote; I Can’t Breathe; Justice; Peace; Equality; Freedom; Enough; Power to the People; Justice Now; Say Her Name; Sí Se Puede (Yes We Can); Liberation; See Us; Hear Us; Respect Us; Love Us; Listen; Listen to Us; Stand Up; Ally; Anti-Racist; I Am A Man; Speak Up; How Many More; Group Economics; Education Reform; and Mentor.

Spears went on to explain that the messaging would appear on a player’s jersey for the first four nights of the NBA restart. Following the first four nights, if a player decides to keep the messaging, that player’s name will appear below the selected phrase.
