Players can display social justice messages on the back of their jerseys above their number, a spot usually reserved for their last name.
Spears released a list of messages that were agreed upon by the NBA and National Basketball Players Association.
The list includes: Black Lives Matter, Say Their Names, I Can't Breathe, Vote, Justice, Peace, Love Us and Listen to Us, among several others.
