Game Time: An ex-Chicago Bull on whether athletes should speak up on issues like BLM

The Black Life Matter protests in the US still continue in the aftermath of the killing of George Flyod. The incident has also led to protests in other countries and has once again sparked conversations about racial discrimination. During this time, Indian cricketers (the IPL Sunrisers Hyderabad team) have also been accused of using racist comments against the former West Indies skipper Darren Sammy. In this episode, Gaurav and Mihir talk about how athletes have spoken out about such issues in the past and the problems that have arisen when they have done so. Gaurav also speaks to the former Chicago Bulls star, Craig Hodges, who was run out of the league for being politically outspoken, about this matter.
