This week on NBA Desktop, Jason Concepcion discusses the ongoing protests and how players like Stephen Jackson, the Boston Celtics’ Jaylen Brown, and the Indiana Pacers’ Malcolm Brogdon are speaking out against racism and police brutality. We also look at the fact that James Dolan and the New York Knicks have failed to put out a statement on the death of George Floyd and discuss how the social media team accounts of the Dallas Mavericks and the Washington Wizards have responded to the issues. And finally, Tyler Tynes, who is reporting on the protest from Washington, D.C., offers his perspective on the week while dunking on Gordon Hayward.
