The NBA is not here for players and coaches disrespecting the American flag. A new report claims the National Basketball Association has sent a warning letter reminding teams not to protest the National Anthem before games by kneeling.

According to the report, the NBA fully expects everyone to stand once the 2017-2018 tips off.

According to the memo, obtained by ESPN, “the league office will determine how to deal with any possible instance in which a player, coach, or trainer does not stand for the anthem.” The memo goes on to say the rule is compulsory … teams “do not have the discretion to waive” the rule. (TMZ)

Recently, “Power” star Omari Hardwick and rapper French Montana have both saluted NFL free agent Colin Kaepernick for making kneeling a Black Lives Matter statement across the nation.

A few days ago, Dreamville rapper J. Cole made a rare Twitter return to speak out on people considering an NFL boycott.

Last Sunday, rapper Uncle Murda saluted Buffalo Bills star LeSean McCoy protesting the National Anthem.
