'This was a moment that wasn't meant for us': Timberwolves dedicate game ball to George Floyd's family

0


The Minnesota Timberwolves huddled up following a 134-120 win over the Sacramento Kings on Tuesday evening in what represented a rare victory during a challenging season. But the Timberwolves seemed more interested in discussing a much more important event that just took place.

A jury ruled on Tuesday that a former Minneapolis police officer was guilty on second-degree and third-degree murder as well as second-degree manslaughter for the killing of George Floyd. Derek Chauvin, a white police officer, was held accountable for the death of Floyd, an unarmed Black man, after kneeling on his neck for more than nine minutes just under a year ago.

“We have the game ball and we dedicated that to George Floyd’s family,” Timberwolves guard Josh Okogie said. “I’m glad we were able to do that.”
