If any players in the NBA are looking to copy what the NFL players did, they may face consequences. ESPN (via TMZ) reports that the NBA has sent a memo to players warning them not to follow in the NFL’s foosteps.

The memo states: “The league office will determine how to deal with any possible instance in which a player, coach, or trainer does not stand for the anthem.

It added that teams “do not have the discretion to waive” the rule. While it doesn’t specifically say that players will be disciplined, it seems to suggest that’s the case. It doesn’t mention players, coaches and owners locking arms before the Anthem.
