Last week, President Joe Biden praised the Milwaukee Bucks for taking a firm political stance after the outrage that kicked off following the shooting of Jacob Blake in Kenosha, Wisconsin on August 23, 2020.
At the time of the police encounter, Blake was armed with a knife and did not comply with police orders. He tried to enter a vehicle while his two children were seated in the back, which compelled the police officer to take action.
The Bucks are the first NBA team to visit the White House since 2016.
“That’s the power of a team and not just winning a title,” Biden said
