Late last month, the U.S. Supreme Court shocked the entire nation by overturning a decades-old ruling known as Roe v. Wade, which federally protected the right to abortion.
Anger, frustration, and protests have erupted all over the country as a result. Not many people, especially women, are feeling like proud Americans.
Washington Wizards forward Kyle Kuzma feels that way as he took to Twitter and canceled the Fourth of July holiday in wake of that Roe v. Wade decision.
Kuzma’s message is certainly a controversial one, but so is overturning that ruling that have put millions of women at risk now and in the future.
In Washington D.C., the Wizards are still looking for answers in the aftermath of another disappointing season.
Bradley Beal is likely to stick around for the foreseeable future, but Kuzma has not been added to the list of untouchables.
“The other consistent word surrounding Washington had been the Wizards’ active pursuit to find a veteran point guard to pair with Beal in the backcourt. Throughout Washington’s efforts, rival teams repeatedly mentioned that Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and Kyle Kuzma were available for trade. The Wizards were ultimately able to send Caldwell-Pope and Ish Smith to Denver on Wednesday in order to land Monte Morris and Will Barton from the Nuggets.”
Last season, he averaged 17.1 points, 8.5 rebounds, and 3.5 assists per game on 45.2% shooting.
