The NBA got the proverbial ball rolling when the Milwaukee Bucks refused to hit the court for their playoff game against the Orlando Magic. One by one the remaining playoff teams followed suit.

The gesture was followed up by a Twitter post from a few of former and current South Carolina Gamecocks.
P.J. Dozier is currently a role player for the Denver Nuggets seeing big minutes in the series against the Utah Jazz. He chimed in.
Current Gamecock head basketball coach Dawn Staley showed her support.

Las Vegas Aces star A'ja Wilson's page has been filled with information about the players decision as well as a link to register to vote, but initially she offered up this piece of advice.
