by September 12, 2016

The first Sunday of the NFL season was highlighted by close contests and players from the Dolphins, Patriots and Chiefs protesting during the National Anthem.

Following the Dolphins loss to the Seahawks, Dolphins owner Steven Ross spoke with the media about the players’ protest and publicly supported them. Upon seeing what Ross had to say, Draymond Green turned to Twitter and applauded Mr. Ross for his comments while also saying that he is “happy the conversation has started and actions are being taken.”

Check out Mr. Ross’ comments and Draymond’s tweets:

Green is now the third Warriors player to publicly support the protesting NBA players. Over the weekend, Kevin Durant said he is “behind anyone who stands up for what they believe in” when asked about Colin Kaepernick and last week, reigning MVP Steph Curry told reporters that he applauds the quarterback for taking a stand.
