On Thursday, Chicago Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher posted a controversial message for NBA players who were boycotting games in the wake of the Jacob Blake shooting.
“Brett Favre played the (Monday Night Football) game the day his dad died, threw four TDs in the first half, and was a legend for playing in the face of adversity.
NBA players boycott the playoffs because a dude reaching for a knife, wanted on a felony sexual assault warrant, was shot by police,” the message read.
New Orleans Pelicans guard Josh Hart saw his post and seemingly fired back at him on Twitter.
“Dude had one too many concussions,” Hart said on Twitter.
Urlacher’s comments came after NBA players decided not to play Wednesday’s playoff games in the wake of the Jacob Blake police shooting in Wisconsin.
Players ultimately agreed to continue on with the postseason, with games starting back on Friday or Saturday.
