In an interview after the game against the Blazers, Anthony Davis spoke with the media about the team's plan for the upcoming playoff round but also the recent conversations the players had with the team's governors. In the lights of current events, in which NBA players decided to take a stand and address the social and racial injustice, they decided to boycott games. Fortunately, that didn't last long, but apparently, one of the reasons why they chose to play again is the agreement they achieved in a series of meetings.

Davis believes the players have all the leverage, and they are pretty much asking from all NBA governors to get involved and use their influence to make beneficial changes. After the meeting, Davis is convinced the governors have their backs and that if they don't deliver, the players are ready not to play anymore.

We do have the leverage, and after the meeting, we feel confident that they will. The conversation went well, and if they don't, then we don't play again. It's simple as that. After the meetings, it was very powerful, impactful meetings, and I think the owners will.

Davis's statement may sound like some sort of a threat, and it's definitely not something fans want to hear, but that is the situation the league is currently facing. Whether the governors will accommodate or not remains to be seen even though several of them expressed their frustration with players and the fact politics is getting into sports arenas where it doesn't belong to.
