NFL Should Follow NBA’s Lead

… on Social Issues

The NFL needs to take a page out of NBA’s book when dealing with social issues … so says “Power” actor Omari Hardwick, who tells TMZ Sports the Association’s “leaps and bounds” above other leagues.
As we previously reported … multiple teams have moved away from using the “owner” title over the past year … given that the term can feel racially insensitive in a league of mostly black players.
We asked Ghost — who played college football at Georgia before switching to acting — what he thought of the idea … and while he says it’s a great move, he’s not surprised one bit that NBA teams are taking action … essentially saying being woke is the NBA’s style.
“It’s smart … it only adds to the brand of the NBA,” Hardwick says. “The NBA has curated for a while now — with David Stern and Adam Silver — a different style of environment.”
Hardwick says the NBA has become more important to him because he feels like the league cares more about the people … and doesn’t see the NFL doing anything about it anytime soon.
