Embattled ESPN broadcaster Jemele Hill may not have the backing of her employer after controversial political commentary - most pointedly, labelling President Donald Trump a white supremacist - but at least two of the most powerful names in basketball are in her corner.

Then, future Hall of Famer (and current Bulls buyout candidate) Dwyane Wade echoed Miller's sentiment:

Recently, the NBA and NBPA voiced their encouragement of players' pursuits of social consciousness.
