Stephen Jackson and George Floyd were very close friends, so the NBA champion has been at the forefront of trying to get justice for Floyd, who was murdered by a white police officer in Minnesota.
As usual, LeBron James has been using his platform and voice to speak out on the tragic murder. Numerous athletes have been walking in the peaceful protests which are taking place all across America, though some protests have gotten violent, unfortunately.
LeBron and the Lakers are waiting to see if the 2019-20 NBA season is going to resume in July or August at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida. Los Angeles had the best record in the Western Conference standings before games were suspended due to COVID-19.
The coronavirus pandemic has somehow taken a back seat in the news due to the tragic murder of Floyd and the outrage which has ensued. Until sports come back on, LeBron and other superstars are going to continue to spend time with their families and use their voice to try and get the proper justice for Floyd and his family.
