LeBron James can get questions that are tough to answer. He had no problem coming up with an answer about George Floyd’s impact on America. King James even considers that Floyd’s death changed the world.
Following the Lakers’ win over the Suns in game two of the NBA Playoffs, LeBron James fielded questions from the press. One question about the George Floyd bill brought a knowledgably and confident response.
When the LA Lakers star was asked about the George Floyd bill, he was in full support. He didn’t mince words in the slightest as he spoke from the heart about the social impact Floyd’s death had on everyone.
“I’m in full support of the George Floyd bill. It will change the landscape of how policing is modified and how policing is looked at. It holds a lot of accountability. It will make our communities and our great nation a better place.”
He continued speaking about the huge impact that George Floyd had on the world. James said that if the United States passes the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act, then the bill “increases accountability for law enforcement misconduct, restricts the use of certain policing practices, enhances transparency and data collection, and establishes best practices and training requirements.”
This is a subject that LeBron James is obviously passionate about, but he is far from the only one. Millions are crying out for police reform and it is possible that George Floyd’s death has sparked much needed change.
