NBA, NFL Pay Tribute To George Floyd On One-Year Anniversary Of His Death The NBA and NFL are both paying tribute to George Floyd on the one-year anniversary of his death. The NFL released a special four-minute video featuring current players Justin Reid and DeMario Davis – along with retired great Doug Williams – reflecting on Floyd’s death and recent trial of Derek Chauvin. The NBA said Floyd’s death “inspired a movement for social justice”, adding “Today, and every day, members of the NBA family stand united in working for change and a future that provides true equality.” Do you expect more Floyd tributes during tonight’s NBA playoff games? How much have things changed in the year since Floyd’s death?

Ten months after police officers brushed off George Floyd's moans for help on the street outside a south Minneapolis grocery, the square remains a makeshift memorial for Floyd who died at the hand of police making an arrest. The trial of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin will begin with jury selection on March 8. (AP Photo/Jim Mone)
