Los Angeles Clippers star Paul George is happy to see the outcome of George Floyd’s murder trial. The Minneapolis jury found Derek Chauvin guilty of murder charges.

After the Minnesota police killed Floyd last year, the case has become a touchstone for social activists around the country. The NBA community supported the movement from the beginning of the case. In that context, Paul George was among the NBA players who wanted to rectify racial injustice and police brutality.

George conveys his happiness in a post-game interview after the Clippers won a competitive game over Portland Trail Blazers. “All races were involved in this verdict. I’m just glad they did the right thing,” George expressed his opinion.

However, Paul has been following the trial from the first day and waiting for the outcome. “I was waiting for the verdict, I caught the verdict as soon as it was delivered,” the 30-year-old NBA star said.

Further, the movements from the NBA community helped to bring justice for Floyd. “The right step in the direction that we need and as a whole,” Paul conveyed about their collective step.

Nevertheless, NBA stars were highly active in this case and called for a systemic change last year. It seems the whole NBA community is satisfied with the verdict as the NBA players association also released a joint statement hailing the moment for its significance. 

George Floyd’s Verdict should be seen as a great success of the NBA player’s off-court activities. It proved that sports communities can put a noteworthy impact on any social injustice and police brutality.
