This week we talk to former NBA basketball player and Minnesota native Royce White about the police murder of George Floyd. White has been at the heart of the protests in the twin cities and talks to us about his experiences there and his insights into the larger issues of white supremacy, policing, and the role of athletes.

We also have some ‘Choice Words’ about the potential for a coalition of anti-racist athletes that might develop in the wake of the killing of George Floyd. In addition, we have ‘Just Stand Up’ and ‘Just Sit Down’ awards to the white athletes that have spoken up about the murder of George Floyd including Joe Burrow, Carson Wentz, Sean Doolittle, Julie and Zach Ertz, JJ Watt and others, and MLB athletes that continue to stay silent on the issue of police killings, with few exceptions. We also got a brand new Kaepernick Watch. All that and more on this week’s Edge of Sports!
