Jamal Murray: Nuggets star says shoes with images of Breonna Taylor and George Floyd “bring me to life” after scoring 50 points


“These shoes give me life,” he said in tears. “Even though these people are gone, they give me life. They help me find strength. “

Murray led his team to a victory over the Utah Jazz with a score of 119-107 on Sunday night, the same day NBA players struck a deal with the owners on social justice initiatives. Before the deal was struck, many players took a stand against police brutality and racial injustice, with some even boycotting the games.

“We’ve found something that we are fighting for as the NBA, as a collective unit,” Murray said, adding that the shoes remind us of this fight and the work to come.

“It won’t take a night,” Murray said. “We have been trying to fight for 400 years. “
