Instead of kneeling players on the NY Liberty and the Seattle Storm found another way to protest police brutality before games.
During the national anthem, players on both teams walked off the court and headed to their respective locker rooms.

Of course a lot of people weren’t happy with the players walking off the court during the anthem.

Stunts like this could provoke the fans to walk out.
