Washington Wizards point guard John Wall defended Kyrie Irving's idea of not going through with the restart of the 2019-20 National Basketball Association season after the Brooklyn Nets star prompted a series of concerns with the plan.

Dwight Howard also has yet to decide whether to play this season.

"Kyrie has his things where he be in his own world..."

While guesting on a recent episode of "The Tuff Juice Podcast" with Caron Butler, Wall said that he understands the motives for finishing the season, but admitted that he wouldn't want to play in the National Basketball Association bubble. "But to be honest, I think he has a point". A lot of people feel that way.

"Because with all this "Black Lives Matter" going on right now and protesting and trying to get justice and all that, a lot of people feel like it's not safe to go there. That's what he stands on". "And so as we work through these issues, I can understand how some players may feel, that it's not for may be for family reasons, it may be for health reasons they have, or it may be because they feel - as some players have said very recently - that their time is best spent elsewhere", said Silver. I just don't feel like it is. "I understand why they want to do it and what they're trying to get to, but I wouldn't want to".

"I think our league is made up of so many African American players". I don't have all the answers, and he's speaking off heart, he's speaking off passion because I said this on no interview, bro. "I'm not going for just eight games and then coming back home".

Silver admitted that there may not be "a uniform view" among players concerning the resumption of the season.
