NEW YORK -- NBA players arent just worried about their teams as they start a new season.Theyre concerned for their country.The usual basketball clich?s that dominate media days gave way to serious talk about social injustice and violence in communities, with players wanting to be involved in finding solutions but acknowledging they dont know yet how.Some of the things that Ive been addressing over this past summer, I think were still in the same state. I think its actually getting worse and it will continue to get worse, Knicks All-Star Carmelo Anthony said Monday. We still have to kind of keep the conversations going.Anthony was among the highest-profile and most outspoken players following the killing of black men by police in Louisiana and Minnesota in July, joining friends and fellow stars LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Paul in a powerful opening to the ESPY Awards and continuing to speak out while playing for the U.S. Olympic team.But recent killings by police in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and Charlotte, North Carolina, captured on video have convinced those players that progress they seek hasnt arrived.Obviously, I know things dont happen overnight, but it doesnt seem like there is any change, James told The Associated Press. We just want the conversation to continue to be, `Who are our leaders? Who are our true leaders that are going to help us change whats going on? Everyone is looking for that and no one knows.Players praised San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick for bringing attention with his peaceful protest of kneeling during the national anthem. James, Anthony, NBA MVP Stephen Curry and others said they would continue to stand -- as NBA rules stipulate -- and hoped players could find meaningful ways to work with their teammates instead of individually.Am I going to kneel down and put my fist up? No, Im not. Thats no disrespect to Colin or anybody else thats doing it. But theyve gotten the point across, said Draymond Green, Currys Golden State teammate. I dont think I need to come out and do a national anthem protest, because its already started. Theres already a conversation. But like I said, is there going to be something done about it?Protests over the killing of Keith Lamont Scott in Charlotte turned violent, with Mayor Jennifer Roberts imposing a curfew. Miami Heat center Hassan Whiteside still calls the area home and was troubled by it.Weve just got to get an understanding of it, Whiteside told the AP. Theres not really one way to fix the problem. Its been going on for a while. People are sick of it.Brooklyns Jeremy Lin said hes thankful theres more awareness about a problem that was long ignored, but is worried about some of the heated reactions they produced.I just know that right now, talking to different parties and seeing both sides, theres just a lot of tension and hostility and I dont think thats going to get it done, Lin said. I think thats going to harbor more violence.Most teams will begin practicing Tuesday. Among the basketball news Monday:NO MORE BOSH IN MIAMI: Chris Bosh appears to have played his final game with the Heat.

Its a lot of fun.Mauer had four of Minnesotas 15 hits, including a single, two doubles and a triple. Hes now 10 for 15 in the series and admitted that its taken some pain for him to start heating up at the plate.Ive been really staying on that back leg, driving the ball, Mauer said. Ive been a little more sore, but its been feeling good getting some results.Twins starter Tyler Duffey (6-8), who allowed five runs and eight hits over six innings, was happy to be in the dugout with Mauer, as opposed to facing the veteran.Hes on a tear right now, Duffey said.
