Erik Spoelstra Speaks On George Floyd


Miami Heat coach Erik Spoelstra voiced his thoughts about the George Floyd situation.

"I mean we just simply can't stand for the systemic racism, social injustice and police brutality against the black community anymore," Spoelstra said. "And it's really about standing up for what's right versus what's wrong."

Spoelstra said the key is not to remain silent. The Heat have always been vocal on matters as such. Heat guard Dwyane Wade and Haslem spoke out after Ahmaud Arbery died.

"It's really about standing up for what's right versus what's wrong," Spoelstra said. "And the other thing is that it really is a call to action. We have an opportunity to be part of a movement to finally impact change. My family and I are all in on this fight. The Miami Heat are all in on this fight. This is not a time to be silent or stand on the sidelines."
