Former NBA star Stephen Jackson, a longtime friend of Floyd and someone he regarded as a brother, is among those who have expressed their anger and is demanding justice at all levels over Floyd’s death.
Jackson, 42, who was born in Port Arthur, Texas, shared a series of Instagram posts in the wake of the news that Floyd, 46, died after a white Minneapolis police officer impeded his breathing by putting a knee to the back of his neck.
Jackson continued to share just how deep the connection was with him and the Houston native known as “Big Floyd” among his family and friends.
The message is beyond clear that Jackson and others who were connected to Floyd via their deep Texas roots are galvanized and committed to getting justice for Floyd and to take care of his children.
