The decision by members of the Minnesota Lynx to wear t-shirts supporting change from the pattern of shooting deaths across the country before Saturday night's game has been a point of discussion around the basketball (and non-basketball) world over the last few days. Today, at his press conference following the NBA's Board of Governors meeting, NBA commissioner Adam Silver was asked about the situation.

Silver's response comes after Minneapolis police officers chose to leave their posts at Target Center over the issue, and the chief of the Minneapolis Police Federation came out in support of the officers' decision. The Lynx's next home game is on Friday evening against New York.
