NORMAN, Okla. (AP) NBA All-Star Trae Young spoke at a peaceful protest of racial injustice and police brutality in his hometown on Monday.
Young, the former University of Oklahoma star who now plays for the Atlanta Hawks, briefly addressed several hundred people at Andrews Park about the deaths of George Floyd and others.
"I know this country's in a messed up place right now," he said. "And for me, I just think it's important that we all stick together and we stand up for what's right. It's not just going to take just me. It's not just going to take just you. It's all of us coming together and doing this as a collective unit."
