Boston Celtics unveil NBA restart jerseys with social justice messaging


When the NBA restart tips off on Thursday, teams will be wearing jerseys with social justice messaging on the back. Players were allowed to choose from a list of 29 phrases the NBA and NBPA agreed on, though some players chose to forgo the special messages and will continue to wear their own names.

Though each team played three scrimmage games, they did not wear the new look during those. The first game with the social justice jerseys will take place Thursday night, and though the Boston Celtics don’t play until Friday, they unveiled a glimpse at those new jerseys on Twitter Wednesday afternoon.
