Wade, James, Anthony and Paul have had enough of the senseless shootings and violence that have been plaguing our nation.

“Tonight is a celebration of sports, celebrating our accomplishments and our victories. But, in this moment of celebration, we have to start the show tonight this way,” said Carmelo Anthony. “We cannot ignore the realities of the current state of America. The events of the last week have put a spotlight on the injustice, distrust and anger that plague so many of us. The system is broken, the problems are not new, the violence is not new, and the racial divide definitely is not new.”
