New York Knicks, Houston Rockets Link Arms For Unity During National Anthem

National anthem protests have been common in the NFL this season, and there was a demonstration before one of tonight's NBA preseason games.

The New York Knicks and Houston Rockets didn't exactly protest during the anthem before their matchup tonight. Instead, the two teams came together and linked arms in a demonstration of unity while the song played.

Here are some photos of the players.

The Knicks and Rockets' gesture is similar to what the Seattle Seahawks have done this season. The New Orleans Saints and Atlanta Falcons also linked arms before their game on Monday night last week.
