I Still Have a Dream

By Mr. Derrel Jazz Johnson

NBA players have risked it like never before over the last year, being inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement, getting President Donald Trump out of office and President Elect Joe Biden elected, and the legacy of the great Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. With that said, we present to you “I Still Have A Dream” by NBA players with some words by Reverend Dr. King himself.

“The NBA always has a couple games throughout the schedule that you want to be a part of and this is definitely one of them so it’s good to get a home win on this day and honor (Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s) legacy.” Julius Randle of New York Knicks.

“MLK Day means a lot to me. I come from an interracial family. My Mom is of whilte decent and my Dad is African-American, so without people like Martin Luther King, I wouldn’t be here. Not just him, everyone in the Civil Rights Movement” Austin Rivers of New York Knicks.

“Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into a friend.” Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

“Dr. King’s legacy is something that is ongoing and fluid today. You see his impact and all of the things he preached about, asked about, and encouraged everybody to open their eyes and to see and to be better.” Wesley Matthews, Los Angeles Lakers.  

“Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into a friend.” Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

“ Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. stood for and is still relevant today must be heard for us to be understood. I feel like we honor him by continuing to speak out, to fight for change, let our voices be heard, do what we’ve been doing, control the narrative, understand that we are strong, we are powerful. We all have dreams and aspirations to be great, to be unjudged, to live free in this world today. Injustice anywhere is a threat to injustice everywhere.” Golden State Warriors including Stephen Curry.

“MLK Day means so much. ( Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.) stood for greater people, no matter their race, no matter their color. He stood for love and not hate, and that’s something we preach is our family household all the time.” LeBron James of the Los Angeles Lakers.

“If I can not do great things, I can do small things in a great way.” Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
