When processing the emotionally charged protests now sweeping the country in the wake of George Floyd’s murder, Murray couldn’t get past how fearlessly police treat black and brown people. “I just think about all the stories that I have growing up with my dad,” Murray said. “How obvious it is. … The stuff that the cops do, the stuff that happens, what bothers us in the black community is that it’s so blatant. It’s blatant, I don’t know how to explain it. The word is perfect. It’s so out in the open, where if you can’t see it, then you’re part of the problem.”
Murray said he’s been heartened by the outpouring of attention on police brutality. “It’s mostly with the cops, when you see, they go through this training, they go through the physicals, the combat trainings and techniques,” Murray said. “I feel like they can’t wait to use everything that they’ve learned, everything that they’ve been taught through the system, they can’t wait to use that, they can’t wait to use their power on the people, on the black community, on people they don’t really think matter. That’s why Black Lives Matter,” he said.
After several shared their stories, Murray shared his. He told the story of how he and his dad were driving to Orangeville Prep, his prep school in Ontario. A police car had cut them off and when they went to pass the car, following the speed limit, they were pulled over. “What are the odds?” Murray said sarcastically. “We’re sitting there like, ‘If we pass him, this is going to happen. Watch. I’m like ‘OK.’ We pass him, guess what happens.” Tailgating, they were told.
Portland Trail Blazers star guard CJ McCollum went on Instagram live with teammate Damian Lillard to chop it up while the NBA is in a hiatus, and McCollum’s beard got trolled by some fans who said it looked like Kevin Durant’s hair. The biggest laugh from McCollum and Lillard, though, came when someone brought up the name Jamal Murray:

Do you still plan to participate with Team Canada in the Olympics? Dillon Brooks: Yeah, absolutely. We are going to make a run. Hopefully, we can beat that virus so we can get over there and play. But I want to make history. I know we have a lot of guys in the league right now like Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and Jamal Murray and Tristan Thompson and Kelly Olynyk. We all want to make history.

“When he tweeted that, I definitely had to say something just to let him know, which I know he knows, everybody has his back,” Morris said. “Just let him know that I could have been better. … Just had to let him know don’t put all that stress and everything on your shoulders. You got other guys with you that could have stepped up and made the game easier.” Nuggets head coach Michael Malone agreed with Morris. “I never want one player taking the blame because the reality is, when we win, we win as a team, and when we lose, we lose as a team,” Malone said. “Did Jamal play great against Golden State? No. But he wasn’t the only one. It’s a noble act by Jamal, but more importantly, I think it’s great when a guy says, ‘You know what, I didn’t play my best so I am going to come out and have a better game the next one.’”

There are two questions worth asking about Gary Harris right now. Both are critical for the Denver Nuggets, and their climb towards the NBA title: “What happened?” and “What if he turns it around?” Two years ago, when Harris was 23, only two players his age averaged more than his 17.5 points per game: Joel Embiid and Giannis Antetokounmpo. The bubbling optimism that surrounded Denver’s young core was amplified by Harris’ breakout campaign, how he so perfectly complemented Nikola Jokic and Jamal Murray in a league increasingly infatuated with athletic three-point shooters who could not be bullied on the other end.
In the days following the move, Jamal Murray said he and Beasley talked multiple times. “(I told him) to do exactly what he’s doing right now,” Murray said. “He’s gonna bring that same energy, he’s a guy that loves to have fun, that loves the game of basketball. We were keeping up at halftime (of the Phoenix game), before the game. We were watching little highlights. He does a great job. It’s good to see him have the opportunity and take advantage of it.”
After a week and further testing, Murray’s ankle injury is less concerning than it was the night of the injury, team sources told Mile High Sports. According to those sources, Murray has a low ankle sprain. There is no firm timetable for his return, but the Nuggets organization is not terribly worried about his ankle issue which is good news considering how much pain Murray was in after sustaining the injury and the fact that he put no weight on his left leg at all at the time.
