Australian Andrew Bogut said he's learned about social issues related to recent national anthem protests during his years in the NBA. "Being around obviously a lot of African-American teammates, I've kind of been more and more educated about it throughout my career. In the same sense, it's hard for me. America's been a place that's let me live my dream and play NBA basketball at the highest level, make a boatload of money doing what I love doing. I understand from the African-American point of view, my teammates' point of view, if they didn't want to stand and [chose to] be a part of that kind of protest. At the same time, I'm thankful. America's provided a lot for me, so it's a tough one for me [because] I'm very supportive of my teammates."
