Dallas Mavericks players, including Luka Doncic, Kristaps Porzingis, Boban Marjanovic and Maxi Kleber, will have the word “Equality” written on the back of their jerseys during the restart of the NBA season, per Mavs writer Dwain Price.

The non-US players of the team will have the word in their native language.

“Equality” is generally so far the most preferred word by NBA players who want to include a message to promote social and racial justice on their jerseys during the remainder of the NBA season. Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert and Portland Trail Blazers center Jusuf Nurkic have also picked “Equality”, per Yahoo’s Chris Haynes.

The NBA resumes on July 31 in Orlando, Florida.
