There’s a number of true activists around the NBA world. We’ve obviously seen LeBron James speak out about the issues of the day, including racial injustice in the United States. Others have taken on current United States President Donald Trump.
Following the murder of an African-American man by the name of George Floyd by a then-Minneapolis Police Department officer on Tuesday, NBA players continue to speak up.
More than that, some are now involving themselves in the nationwide protests stemming from the murder of Mr. Young.
That includes Philadelphia 76ers star forward Tobias Harris, who was out in the City of Brotherly Love Saturday afternoon protesting with thousands of his fellow citizens.
The scene in Philadelphia was less violent than what has happened in other major U.S. cities over the past several days.
One moment in particular caught the attention of the social media world and brought everything back to the Colin Kaepernick-led protests from years ago.
It’s not yet known whether Harris was involved in that particular destination. But it’s clear that he’s taken to Philadelphia’s activist ways since becoming a citizen of his adopted city following a trade from the Los Angeles Clippers during the 2018-19 season.
