“I have decided not to,” Butler said during a Tuesday video call with reporters. “With that being said, I hope that my last name doesn’t go on there as well. Just because I love and respect all the messages that the league did choose, but for me, I felt like with no message, with no name, it’s going back to, like, who I was. And if I wasn’t who I was today, I’m no different than anybody else of color and want that to be my message in the sense that just because I’m an NBA player, everybody has the same right, no matter what, and that’s how I feel about my people of color. “I think it’s important to know that we’re regular human beings like everybody else,” Butler said. “And the same stuff that everybody’s going through right now in the world, we’ve dealt with before. It may not have been yesterday, but maybe it was 10 years ago, who knows? And for everybody to see how human we really are, and we hurt just like everybody else, and we have to deal with this just like everybody else — it’s real. And I felt like that town hall for us, it opened everybody’s eyes — not just ours as a team but everybody that was watching.”
