After George Floyd was killed by police, various protests have taken place around the country in response to his death and police brutality against people of color.

In Nashville, where he returned to when the quarantine order took place, Cavs guard Darius Garland helped clean up the city after the fact. Among other, he helped clean alongside Rockets forward Robert Covington.

This is really good on Garland for doing something and helping his community in some way. Additionally, he and other Cavs — including Larry Nance Jr., Collin Sexton and Kevin Love — have posted black photos to Instagram as part of Blackout Tuesday.

Players around the league, such as Jaylen Brown, Trae Young and Dennis Smith Jr., have also participated in protests in the wake of Floyd’s death.
