Los Angeles Lakers superstar small forward LeBron James honored the late George Floyd on Monday.
James wore a long-sleeved black t-shirt with a stopwatch on it. The stopwatch is stopped on 8 minutes and 46 seconds, the amount of time police officer Derek Chauvin kneeled on the neck of Floyd.

James said before the seeding games started he was going to use his platform at Disney World to pressure the Kentucky Attorney General to arrest the cops who murdered Breonna Taylor in her Louisville home.
The Lakers star has kept his promise on that matter, but he’s also going to make sure he honors Floyd and his family as much as possible.
LeBron and the Lakers are 1-1 so far down in Orlando, Florida. They defeated the Los Angeles Clippers and lost to the Toronto Raptors.
