A Pacers team that was expected to contend for the Eastern Conference title was without all of its best players, from Ron Artest to Jermaine O’Neal to Stephen Jackson. They had been suspended. Veteran Reggie Miller was out with a broken hand, but he offered to play. Carlisle would not let him. Scot Pollard and Jamaal Tinsley both suited up for the game, but because of injury they were out. While postponing a game this season is common, the idea of postponing an NBA game because a team had only six available players was as much of an unknown then as was COVID-19.
Months after George Floyd’s daughter Gianna lost her father to racially motivated police brutality, a community of celebrities have come together to plan a special gathering for her seventh birthday, the first without her father. The celebration has been in the works since July, when Gianna visited family friends and restaurant owners Ericka and William Platt of Restaurant Ten and Rosie’s Café. The Platt family is also close to NBA star Stephen Jackson, and they came together to brainstorm ideas for a celebration.
Throughout 2020, two former NBA players, Rasheed Wallace and Stephen Jackson, have used their station and platforms to enhance the struggle for social justice. They will bring that activism to Memphis on Saturday, Dec. 13. Wallace and Jackson — a longtime friend of George Floyd, a Black man killed by a now-former Minneapolis police office in May — are scheduled to hold an event this coming weekend at the NAACP Memphis branch on Vance Avenue, according to Van Turner, NAACP Memphis president and a Shelby County Commissioner.
On Saturday, the men will be at the Lonnie Young Recreation Center at 1 p.m. in the city’s Germantown section for a food and resource giveaway. They are also in the city to talk about equality and unity. “We stand up as one, then we can have a better life,” said Wallace. “Remember, as Black folks, I don’t want more than you. I just want equality, that’s all.” Jackson said, “We’re just taking care of our people, and when I say ‘our people,’ it’s all our people that are in the same struggle.”
