Former NBA star Stephen Jackson speaks out about George Floyd, Drew Brees


Stephen Jackson, a former NBA player who was lifelong friends with George Floyd, talks to TODAY’s Craig Melvin about telling Floyd’s 6-year-old daughter Gianna that her “daddy changed the world.” He also speaks out about New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees’ controversial remarks about taking a knee during the National Anthem, saying “the timing is definitely bad … it just baffles me.” He welcomes the new charges against the police officers involved in Floyd’s death, but questions why there were no public arrests: “Why didn’t they have a walk of shame?”
