via: NBA.

Many players from the association decided to speak up following the devastating news at Louisville, Kentucky, where a grand jury decided not to charge officers with killing Breonna Taylor.

Taylor, a 26-year-old Black emergency room technician and aspiring nurse, was shot to death in March after Louisville police officers broke down the door to her apartment while executing a late-night warrant in a narcotics investigation.

The NBA athletes have used their platform to speak up about social injustice the United States. Multiple teams even boycotted games during the playoffs, demanding for change and also hoping that the cops who killed Taylor get arrested.

Despite their efforts this has not happened, as many players and coaches around the league, including LeBron James, decided to speak up and demand change.

Former police officer Brett Hankison, one of the cops involved in the shooting, was indicted on first-degree wanton endangerment charges for his actions on the night Breonna Taylor was killed. The two other officers who also fired shots during the raid were not indicted.
