Carmelo Anthony called on six professional sports franchises to change their Native American nicknames, including the Golden State Warriors.
The Washington NFL team and the Cleveland Indians are currently reevaluating their nicknames.
Washington is widely expected to removes its existing nickname before the start of the 2020 season.
The Indians have removed the offensive Chief Wahoo logo from the vast majority of its merchandise and is no longer worn by players on-field.
The Warriors had a logo featuring a caricature of a Native American similar to the Indians while in Philadelphia from 1946 until 1962 before switching to a headdress in San Francisco. The Warriors eliminated the logo in 1970.
We are not equal until all our communities are equal. In support of our Native American communities, the use of Native mascot names needs to end. @Redskins @NFL #TheTimeIsNow pic.twitter.com/3ZSmNhCZFa— Carmelo Anthony (@carmeloanthony) July 8, 2020
