In Nba there are only two franchises, out of 30 teams, which have not yet taken a position on the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis. These are the San Antonio Spurs and the New York Knicks. But if coach Gregg Popovich (Trump unsuited to govern, in a nutshell his thought) spoke first, the Knicks remained silent in front of everything that happened. An indifference to the case that is shaking the United States in recent days which has raged both the players and the employees of the company. At least from what Espn reports. Usually the Knicks are used to publish releases for any matter, but not for the death of George Floyd.
A public silence that hurts. Also according to Espn reports, there have been many journalists who have obtained an internal email sent by the owner James Dolan to his employees of the Madison Square Garden Company, defending his decision not to speak: Some of you have asked if our company had in plans to publicly take a stand on the killing of George Floyd by a Minneapolis police officer. I realize the importance of the issue and for this I want you to understand our internal position. a turbulent period in our country. Coronavirus and civil unrest have weighed on our lifestyle. We at Madison Square Garden defend the values of a respectful and peaceful workplace. We will always do it. In any case, as companies operating in sports and entertainment, we are no more qualified than anyone else to offer our opinion on social issues. What is important how we operate. Our companies are committed to raising our values, which include creating a job that respects everyone, and this will never change. What we say to each other is important. How we treat each other importantly. And this is what will make us overcome this difficult moment.
