Tamika Catchings ends Illustriuos Career; Team Knelt during National Anthem

Tamika Catchings was proud of the stand her WNBA Indiana Fever teammates took before the final game of her illustrious career when the entire squad knelt during the national anthem, locking arms and lowering heads in a show of unity. They join players in other sports who are protesting social injustice, racial oppression and police brutality in the United States. This was the first time an entire professional team took a knee.

Fever coach Stephanie White said, "We don't create change by seeing it on the news and waiting until next time. People who have the platforms have the ability to affect change, and I'm proud of our group for using the platform in a respectful manner."
