NEW: Many sports figures have released statements condemning the death of George Floyd. Some NBA players are going farther: hitting the streets themselves. @Enes_Kanter told me he drove 20 hours to get to Boston on Sunday. Jaylen Brown did 15 to Atlanta.
Celtics forward Jaylen Brown drove 15 hours to lead a peaceful protest near his hometown in Atlanta on Saturday. "I don't know all of the answers. But I feel how everybody else is feeling, for sure. No question." - Jaylen Brown
Jaylen Brown drove 15 hrs from Boston to ATL to peacefully protest racial injustice & police brutality w/ @Pacers Malcolm Brogdon. The 23-yr-old @celtics @FCHWPO once said that people often get comfortable w/ their roles in life and forget about those who are uncomfortable 🙏
Jaylen Brown drove 15 hours today to peacefully protest in Atlanta. "Being a celebrity, being an NBA player don't exclude me from no conversations at all. ... We're raising awareness for some of the injustices that we've been seeing. It's not ok.” (via @FCHWPO )
