Today, the NBA will tip off leaguewide celebrations honoring the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
NBA teams playing Jan. 16–20 will wear custom Nike MLK Day warmup shirts designed in collaboration with the NBPA, MLK Foundation and Martin Luther King III. The Dri-FIT T-shirt features words from MLK’s timeless speech on Aug. 28, 1963: “We cannot walk alone. And as we walk, we must make the pledge that we shall always march ahead. We cannot turn back.” Available for sale on @NBAStore, all NBA proceeds will go to the @ncrmuseum in Memphis, TN.
